Take advantage of our Mountain Meltdown Ski & Stay Packages!
Lutsen has been open into April every year for the past 26 years – performance that no other Midwest ski area can match. Our guarantee is simple…make your reservation, assured that you can expect the conditions that draw you to Lutsen: long runs and a variety of terrain. If we cannot meet our goal of 40 or more runs open, you may cancel your reservation without any obligation.

Feeding Leroy
Feeding LeRoy is a unique project that came out of the collaboration of Sonja and Lee’s original songs blending with their songwriting and vocal harmonies. It’s a family affair now, with brother Luke stepping in on the harmonica and longtime friend and bassist, Adam Staupe on the upright bass, adding harmonies that create somewhat of a gospel undertone.

Evergreen Grass Band
With an energetic and original three-piece including guitar, bass and banjo, the EverGreen Grass Band has been winning ears and hearts alike with their straight-forward, face-melting ungrass songs, toe-tappin
country tunes and original grass arrangements of covers in any genre.

Galactic Cowboy Orchestra
The GCO appreciates and aspires to superior musicianship while combining their love of a good riff, hummable melody and groovy jam… over a jazz/jazz-rock musical bedrock. It all culminates in an intensely energetic live performance because “we freakin’ love what we do and love that the fans dig it too!! “

A five-member string band from Minnesota arranged as a traditional bluegrass group but with diverse musical backgrounds. Rich warm harmonies accompany tasteful melodies and imaginative rhythms in original music that all listeners will enjoy. With intriguing tunes and a passionate performance, they are sure to resonate with your soul.

Briand Morrison & Sam Miltich
Two phenomenal guitar players from the Northland join forces in this dueling gypsy jazz duo. Sam Miltich, guitarist with the Clearwater Hot Club and local guitar maestro Briand Morrison weave their way through scales and rhythms of gypsy swing and traditional jazz compositions.

Joe Paulik
Joe’s songwriting style and impressive vocal range has been compared to Gordon Lightfoot and his lyrics to Neil Young. His repertoire inculdes a wide range of music — from the Beatles to Dylan.

Spruce Roots
Spruce Roots features frequent performers on the local music scene. Eric Frost, accompanied by a stellar cast with Jim Elverhoy on harmonica, Jessa Frost on fiddle, Bill Hansen on dobro and Travis Wickwire on bass, the ensemble weaves through a repertoire of Americana, folk and bluegrass with a touch of swing and rock and roll to get you on your feet.
