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.

We will definitely be back!

We LOVED the town of Grand Marais. This hotel was the perfect location to walk anywhere in the town. It was so convenient to just walk to restaurants, shopping and the beach. The view from the room was fantastic and unexpected. The room had a little patio that overlooked the lake. It was very clean and had a nice tile shower with a double shower head. So much nicer than what I expected. They also had a very nice fitness room, which I didn’t use since the weather was great and we got lots of exercise outdoors. But this would be great in the winter or inclement weather. There was a free breakfast which was nice. They kept it clean and well maintained, which I noticed and appreciated. Can’t wait for our next trip! We will definitely stay here again!
