We packed our bags early Saturday and left for the North Shore for Spring Break.
To avoid driving the longer hours up north, we drove half way and spent a night at Black Bear Casino and Resort. Brady and I are not gamblers at all, but it was fun pushing buttons for a bit.
It wasn't our first time at Lutsen Mountains, but it was our first time doing the Ski In/Ski Out deal. Best idea ever when snowboarding/skiing. We stayed at the Eagle Ridge Resort on the mountains. The slopes closed at about 4PM, but we were able to enjoy their outdoor pool, which you could swim through a hole to get into the indoor pool. Let's not forget the hot tub and sauna, I mean, I live for these kind of amenities when I look into staying at a resort. When night falls, we were able to listen to live music! John Mark Nelson played at the local Papa Charlie's Tavern. He's a Twin Cities local. We were happy to get a little night life scene in the mountains. :)
We had a lovely week at the mountains though I may have gotten bruised up on mah knees and sore back muscles. The views were just breath taking and I have never been so afraid of heights in my life until my late 20's!!! My gosh, I won't lie, I closed my eyes a few times in the gondola and I did slip off the chair lift once. I laughed it up and got right back on the lift. I'm going to enjoy the fun. :)
Pretty fun, eh? We traded the beach for the fresh powder. I've been enjoying all your Spring Break photos via Instagram! ♥ I hope you are all recharged for the weekend! ♥
