Lutsen Mountains Celebrate Spring Carnival And Easter On The Slopes; Open Until April 12
The Heartland’s largest ski resort, Lutsen Mountains, has had a good winter and plans on staying open until mid-April, which they’ve done for the last 23 years. A couple of fun events are taking place over the next couple of weeks.
The resort will host its Spring Carnival Saturday, March 28. There will be costume contests, family fun races with great prizes, fireworks and lots of live entertainment. The weekend theme is a giant deck party. Grab your beach gear, crazy costumes, ski and riding gear and head north to Lutsen. All events are free and open to the public. It’s the heartiest beach party north of South Beach.
Easter Festival takes place Sunday, April 5. Kids of all ages are invited to hunt for the 500 eggs hidden along the slopes. Eggs are filled with all kinds of prizes from candy to cool Lutsen swag. A lift ticket is required to participate in the hunt.
Lutsen is offering attractive lift and lodging packages through the end of the season. Stay three or more nights Sunday through Thursday and it's half-price. Stay three or more nights over the weekend and get one day of lift and lodging free.
Lutsen arguably offers some of the best spring skiing and riding found around the Great Lakes Region. Overlooking Lake Superior's north shore, the scenery is spectacular. They plan on keeping at least 40 runs open through April 12.
