If you’re looking for Cook County, Minnesota or North Shore Snow Skiing & Snow Boarding, your destination is the Lutzen Mountains only 20 miles from Grand Marais, Spread across four mountains — Eagle, Ullr, Mystery and Moose — Lutsen Mountains offers more variety than any Midwestern ski area. The new Doppelmayr gondola makes it easier to get between the two furthest peaks, Eagle and Moose, while joyriding above a stream-cut canyon.
Lutsen is quadruple the size of most Great Lakes ski resorts. With four peaks, more than 1,000 acres, over 1,000-foot vertical drop, over 90 runs and the region’s only gondola, it’s a legitimate ski area. This New England look-alike also gets rave reviews from skiers and snowboarders for the scenery, thanks to its spectacular views of Lake Superior from just about anywhere on the mountain. Located on four separate peaks of the Sawtooth Mountain range – Moose Mountain, Eagle Mountain, Ullr Mountain and Mystery Mountain – Lutsen offers long New England-like trails.

Grand Marais & North Shore Winter Activities
With an average of 120 inches of snow per year, you would expect Grand Marais & North Shore Winter Activities to include just about everything you could want to do on this slippery white stuff! You'd be right, and you can enjoy it on the 400 km of groomed cross-country ski trails (the biggest such network in North America), 450 miles of snowmobile trails, and 1,000 acres of downhill skiing and snowboarding.
The ancient Sawtooth Mountains rise 1088 feet above the coast of Lake Superior – topography, unlike any other Midwest locale. And that brings more of what you want in a ski trip – the highest mountains, the most snow, and the breathtaking beauty of Lake Superior and the Sawtooth Mountains. Lutsen Mountains offers 95 sweeping runs over four mountains with a lift-serviced vertical rise more than double that of other regional resorts. Lutsen offers more terrain – and terrain features – than any other Midwest destination. In addition to miles of backcountry trails filled with timber features, cliff drops and off-piste adventure, Lutsen Progression Parks offer jibs and jumps on all four mountains covering more terrain and offering the longest slopestyle run in Mid-America.
