Lutsen Mountains (Minnesota), the largest ski resort by acreage in the Midwest, jut announced yesterday afternoon that they will spin lifts for one final day on Saturday, May 7th.
It marks the latest closing day in the mountain’s history!
Here’s the plan for Saturday according Lutsen:
“Watching the forecast, this Saturday looks to be a glorious day on the North Shore. Spring has sprung as we anticipate roaring rivers, blue skies, temps near 50 … and a base that is still 30+ inches. We are extending our Extended Weekends and will be open Saturday, May 7 for one more day of skiing on Eagle Mountain with 10th Mtn chair, 10 – 12 runs. This is our latest closing day on record – come join us for the celebration.”
Lutsen will take the cake as the Midwestern ski resort with the longest season this year. They just narrowly beat out favorite Mount Bohemia, MI who called it a season after last weekend.
Congrats to all of our friends getting lift-serviced turns at Lutsen on Saturday! Skiing on May 7th isn’t something that typically happens in that part of the country, enjoy it while you can!
