Who doesn’t love a last min random adventure?! When asked mid-week if I wanted to snowboard one last time the upcoming weekend in Lutsen, I was hesitant. Being a Virgo, I really like to think things through before I make a final decision (even though I knew I would eventually say yes). I had planned to go to yoga, two long distance runs, meet a new friend (sorry Erin) for coffee and blogging, and have a Sons of Anarchy binge session with one of my best gfs. But let’s be honest–I love random adventures and snowboarding ONE last time sounded like too much fun
Got to Bluefin Bay Fri eve and we were hungry sooo went up the hill to Papa Charlie’s! They had their Sweetwater Shakedown event going on and we had the chance to listen to a few bluegrass bands warming up–for free ha. That night we brought a few drinks to the outdoor hot tub and met some random folks. The chance to sit back and relax was MUCH NEEDED!
Got up bright n early Sat morn and went on a lil walk to breakfast.
The view was BEAUTIFUL and I just had to snap a pic (weird!)
Ok…we’re ready for snowboarding!! Got to Lutsen and hopped over to Moose via Gondola (Zig’s 1st time!). Beautiful day for snowboarding as they just got 10″ fresh powder, it was sunny and high 30’s.

Went a few places at Lutsen that I had never gone before. We went as far left (when looking up at mountain) as possible. We were so deep in the woods there was a sign that we crossed the Lutsen Mountain border. Not sure which mountain we were on then buuut carving throughout the trees was SOOO much fun I want to go back…right MEOW.

The last part of the day we went back to Eagle and found some awesome jumps to do! I was hesitant and nervous right when I got up to them at first…but by the end I was doing a few. Seriously cannot wait for next season to devote more time to jumps!
If you are going snowboarding/skiing you have GOT to download the free Alpine Replay app! This allows you to track your speed, vertical, jumps, Calories, and more.
Check out mine. Not realistic as my phone died mid-day Darn iPhone batteries!! But you get the idea.
After a long, fun day of boarding we were sooo ready to check out the hot tub again before sunset. The view is incredible as it sits right on Lake Superior.
So exhausted we might have fallen asleep to the movie Frozen that night. Still want to finish that sucker…
All in all…quite the random, beautiful, refreshing, adventurous getaway!! Happy that I went
