Alpine Slide at Lutsen Mountains in Lutsen, MN

Alpine Slide

Everybody likes a little thrill every now and then, and the Alpine Slide is ready to oblige. Getting there is half the fun with a leisurely chairlift ride to the summit of Lutsen's Eagle Mountain. Then hop on your sled and cruise down an exhilarating half-mile of twisting, turning track back to the base.

You control the speed from top to bottom. Take it slow, and you can soak in the sights. Let it rrrippp - and the hill's a blur of fun as you roar down your own summer luge run. Its amusement park fun the whole family will enjoy - done up in classic North Shore ambiance.

Children ages 2-5 are free with a paid adult and must ride with a guest 16 or older. Children 6+ are required to purchase a ticket for the alpine slide, however, if they are under 48" they may ride with a guest 16 or older if necessary. All children over 48" must ride in their own sled.

A release of liability is required for all guests riding the alpine slide, please complete this prior to arrival. Once on-site, we ask that only one member of your party enter our line queues so that we may best adhere to social distancing guidelines, please follow arrows to access line queues and stand on our gondola icons. 



Please be COVID aware during your visit. The North Shore offers ample space to be outside and enjoy nature but occasionally trailheads and overlooks will become congested during this spectacular season. Please have a face mask at-the-ready and wear it when social distancing is not possible at overlooks, in line queues, and while riding the gondola. To minimize congestion, order tickets online, and send just one person from your party into the line queue. If riding the Alpine Slide, complete a liability waiver for each guest before arrival. Be aware that restaurants are all operating at reduced capacity and may have wait times. Bring water and snacks and consider planning meals at your cabin or condo. Working together we can all safely enjoy the great outdoors.
