Ride the Doppelmayr 8-person gondola; smooth, quiet, and quick!

The ancient Sawtooth Mountains rise 1088 feet above the coast of Lake Superior – topography, unlike any other Midwest locale. And that brings more of what you want in a ski trip – the highest mountains, the most snow, and the breathtaking beauty of Lake Superior and the Sawtooth Mountains. Lutsen Mountains offers 95 sweeping runs over four mountains with a lift-serviced vertical rise more than double that of other regional resorts. Lutsen offers more terrain – and terrain features – than any other Midwest destination. In addition to miles of backcountry trails filled with timber features, cliff drops and off-piste adventure, Lutsen Progression Parks offer jibs and jumps and the longest slopestyle run in Mid-America.

Hours: 9:30-4 Mon-Fri and 9-4 Sat, Sun & Holidays

Holidays: Dec 26 – Jan 2, Jan 15-16 and Feb 19-22
