MONDAY PICK | Get iced at the Caribou Highlands Lodge


I’m always a sucker for a good ice bar, so I feel compelled to inform you that there are not one but two currently operating at Caribou Highlands Lodge in Lutsen—where those hard-core skiiers who don’t want to warm up even when they’re not on the slope can meet the lodge-lovers who will venture into subzero temps only when there’s a drink involved. There’s the intimate Moguls Ice Bar, and then there’s the magnificent BLU Ice Bar, a full bar made out of 60,000 pounds of ice. There’s even a theme—Lake Superior lighthouses—and an “aurora borealis wall.” Kitsch it while you can: there’s no guarantee the ice bars will be open past March 31.
