Cross-Country Skiing

This is the best Minnesota cross country skiing around! The Lutsen Resort area has over 150 kilometers of groomed and tracked cross-country trails winding through a spectacular variety of terrain with Lake Superior overlooks, open maple forests, canopies of cedar wetlands with deer and wolf tracks, across sunny meadows and small ponds. The trails vary from short beginner loops and longer 6 to 10 km. intermediate loops to half-day and day-long skis with a fabulous 25 km. loop for experienced skiers.

Our staff are avid cross country skiers and always know the latest ski conditions. They can also direct you to cross-country ski maps and trail descriptions.

The resort has complimentary xc skis and snowshoes available for guests. The resort provides a waxing room for cross-country skiers.
