According to the weatherman winter has begun this week. Of course the official winter for most begins with the winter solstice and the shortest day of the year. Either way it's here and evidence can be seen in Lutsen Minnesota. The Mountaintop Restaurant has quite a view at the top of Moose Mountain. They make snow of course and they opened Thanksgiving weekend.
Lutsen Ski resort is really wonderful with many activities. Even just dining and sightseeing can be very enjoyable. The view from the Mountaintop Restaurant can be all the way to Michigan on a clear day. Skiing is the best in the Midwest with over 90 runs when fully open. Or you can simply ride to the top in the Tram and have a lunch with a fireplace. What a view! The daily satellite shot shows the snow and the frozen lakes on the Northshore.
