Girls Gone North Weekend Recap

Our 10th Annual Girls Gone North Weekend has come and gone. This year’s event theme was “Creativity is Cool (And Fun)!” We  invited you to bring out your creative side as you enjoyed special time with your gal pals on the North Shore.  For our signature event, we partnered with Cheers Pablo to host a complimentary Paint & Sip. This event was a great success! It was incredible to see everyone’s creative side come out as the instructors led us step-by-step through the process of creating an amazing painting of the beloved northern lights. What fun!

Guided hikes were another popular activity this year. Participants enjoyed beautiful snowy hikes and stunning views on popular trails like Carlton Peak, Caribou Falls, and Sugarloaf Cove. The scheduled trips to the local North Shore Winery were a big hit. This was a special event for Girls Gone North participants only and included a shuttle to the winery, a wine tasting, a souvenir wine glass, signature chocolate, and a tour of the winery. Fun was had by all as we experienced a taste of Lutsen! Participants this weekend also made visits to our Waves of Superior Spa, a yoga class, Friday Night Happy Hour, and lots of time to just relax and have girl time!

We gathered so many fun photos from this year’s Girls Gone North Weekend and are sharing them in a Facebook Photo Gallery that you can view here. Enjoy!

We hope to see you for next year’s Girls Gone North Weekend November 9-11, 2018!
