Abstract: Given a closed subset of an $ n$-dimensional Minkowski space with a strictly convex or differentiable norm, then, for almost every $ r > 0$, the $ r$-level set (points whose distance from the closed set is $ r$) contains an open subset which is an $ n - 1$ dimensional Lipschitz manifold and whose complement relative to the level set has $ n - 1$ dimensional Hausdorff measure zero. In case $ n = 2$ and the norm is twice differentiable with bounded second derivative, almost every level set is a 1 manifold.
