Lutsen Mountains Plans To Open November 13
Lutsen Mountains, the Heartland's largest ski resort located along the shore of Lake Superior, is opening in less than two weeks with their First Tracks weekend, November 13-15. They will be open for skiing and riding weekends through Thanksgiving and early December, opening daily on December 11.
A two-night first tracks lift and lodging package is available for those first two weekends from $119 per person, based on quad occupancy
Lutsen will continue implementing a daily capacity limit on skier visits this season creating a number of sold-out days. An online calendar highlights these peak days and will be updated throughout the season as availability becomes low, sold out, or additional dates start to reach capacity. Online reservations are strongly recommended and will be necessary for select dates.
The ski resort keeps its snowmaking crew on-call 24/7 starting November 1. In a typical season that normally allows the ski area to open six to 10 runs on Eagle Mountain by mid-November. With a strategic mix of novice, intermediate and expert terrain it's the perfect opportunity to get your ski legs going early season.
From November 25 through December 17 the resort is offering half-priced holidays, two-night lift, and lodging packages from $139 per person, based on quad occupancy. The offer is also good daily when they open for skiing on a daily basis.
Lutsen guarantees that they will have 20 runs open by the first weekend in December, which equals nearly 10 miles of trail. If they fail to meet the goal reservations may be canceled without penalty.
When fully open Lutsen offers 95 runs, the longest two miles, that fall down four mountain tops. The ancient Sawtooth Mountain chain rises over 1,000 feet above Lake Superior, often visible on many runs. Their season typically runs from early November into mid-April and weekends into May.
