Although Duluth may be the snowiest city of consequence in the state, the snowiest town in Minnesota is almost always a community tucked against the Lake Superior highlands along its north shore. Lutsen, for example, regularly receives more snow (not counting what is made at the eponymous ski resort) than most other places in the state, making it one of the state’s snowiest towns – and a great place for a winter getaway in Minnesota.
