Skier on fresh powder at Lutsen Mountains

Lift Tickets

Lutsen Mountains will be implementing a daily capacity limit on skier visits during the 2020 – 2021 season.  While our 1,000 acres and wide-open space provide ample opportunity for social distancing on the slopes, chalets and restaurants will have limited capacity while adhering to COVID 19 operational protocols.  This will create a number of sold-out days.  We have built an online calendar to highlight these peak days and will update throughout the season as availability becomes low, sold out, or additional dates start to reach capacity.  Online reservations are strongly recommended and will be necessary for ensuring your space on the mountain for select dates.  Please review the ticket products below for the best option for your travel itinerary.

Saturday/Holiday Minimums:  Advance purchase of tickets with start dates on Saturdays or during Winter Break (12/26 – 1/2) or President’s Weekend (2/14 & 2/15) require a 2-day minimum.  Single-day Window Tickets will be offered within 72 hours of arrival, subject to availability.
