Lake Superior Gets Angry!

Monday, April 16th, 2018

There is no doubt that Lake Superior is upset about the delay of Spring weather here in the Northland. The waves from Lake Superior were crashing into the Canal Park shores the past few days during the most recent winter storm. My girlfriend and I thought it would be a good idea to go down and check out the “beauty” of the powerful Lake Superior. We may or may not have gotten a little too close and walked away soaked. It was quite the site along the Lakewalk as everything was covered in a thick layer of ice. There is always something new to see or witness around Duluth, if you are willing to brave the elements!

Mont du Lac Resort Tubing

Friday, January 5th, 2018

Most students in the Duluth area are familiar with Spirit Mountain. They have great skiing and snowboarding runs, tubing lanes, bike trails, cabins, etc. However, there is also another top notch, smaller scale, winter recreational area just 15 minutes south of Duluth in Superior, WI. Mont du Lac Resort is a “charming ski resort, naturally sculpted by glaciers, that lies nestled among an enchanting cedar forest with breathtaking views of the St. Louis River and Jay Cooke State Park”. My girlfriend, younger brother, his girlfriend, and I had a blast racing down the tubing lanes at the Mont du Lac Resort the other night. Check out the link above for their rates/hours and be sure to compare them to some of the other winter resorts (Giant’s Ridge, Lutsen, Spirit Mountain) around for the best deal!
