Summit Express

Summer gondola lupine
You won't find a better vantage point to view the Sawtooth Mountains and Lake Superior's dramatic coastline.

This aerial gondola is one of the North Shore's most popular attractions, taking you on a scenic ride to the top of Moose Mountain. Rising 1,000 feet above Lake Superior, the gentle ride is an experience not to be missed.

Keep your eyes open for eagles, pine marten, bear, timber wolves, and moose, explore hiking trails, or stop at the Summit Chalet at Lutsen Mountains for gorgeous views and lunch or a snack.
