Lutsen Ski Trip 2016

Lutsen Trip 2016
A couple of weeks ago, we took a trip (along with a few other families) to Lutsen Mountains


A friend of ours that headed up the trip secured a condo for the families to share (this is the condo right next to ours).

Morning in the condo!

All the skiers were in a bit of hustle to get going and get on the hills. Most of the moms (including me: I am NOT willing to ski while in my third trimester) stayed in the condo to watch the little kiddos.

Story time! I brought a few books, and picked up a few more at thrift stores on the way to Lutsen.

We (and by "we" I mean Reuben) decided to take Helen out skiing!

It was a beautiful day, though pretty cloudy (bad for visibility on the slopes).

The magic carpet is a MUCH better choice for small children.

Helen enjoyed skiing, but she would need a lot more practice to be able to go down the hill by herself. She likes Daddy to hold her up.

After staying 3 nights (skiing 2 days), it was time to pack up and head home.

We drove home in the snow.

It was a very fun trip. I hope we can do something similar again one day!

Have you ever been skiing?

  1. Beautiful photos. Snow and mountains, hard to beat for scenery. Glad you were able to get away, even if you didn't ski.

  2. I have never been skiing. Great scenery! I bet it was great to be there, in the warm condo at such a beautiful place, even though skiing wasn't an option, but glad you had company at the condo :)
