It's hard not to think of downhill, or Alpine skiing when it comes to winter! We're lucky here at Cascade Lodge, to have the biggest and best alpine ski area west of the Rockies just a stone's throw away at Lutsen Mountains! The breathtaking vistas from the top of Lutsen Mountains, overlooking Lake Superior to the South and the Superior National Forest to the North, can't be matched anywhere in the world! Every winter Cascade Lodge partners with Lutsen Mountains to offer special 'Ski-and-Stay' packages that offer discounted loging and lift tickets in a convenient, one-stop package.
Competetive downhill skiing is a staple of the weekend TV sports shows in the winter time, with World Cup races aired often. Every four years the Winter Olympics feature downhill ski races that are full of action and excitement. Downhill skiing is a sport that anyone can enjoy, even if they aren't a world-class racer. Snowboarding, a close relative sport, is also enjoyed by thousands of people with a variety of skill levels.
