5 Winter Activities / North Shore, Minnesota
Somewhat obvious, we can’t help but to add a 6th —
While you may hear that Lutsen Resort is as expensive as going out west, it is still the best skiing you can get in the tri-state area. The runs are extensive, the terrain manageable for all level skiers, and the on-slope entertainment can’t be beat. There is no one who doesn’t end their day watching live music at Papa Charlies. There are plenty of places that offer ski and and ski out accommodations (like family favorite Caribou Highlands) but in our experience it’s just not necessary. It’s easy to drive, park and access the mountain if you are staying elsewhere like this incredible VRBO property in Lutsen, ideal in the winter. For more places to stay, see our full North Shore Post.
