Lutsen Skiing

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 making Lutsen skiing the best in the midwest. 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.
