Overview

You won't find a better vantage point from which 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 over Lake Superior. The gentle ride at treetop level is an experience not to be missed if you're visiting the North Shore! Stop at the Summit Chalet at Lutsen Mountains, a beautiful mountaintop chalet welcoming guests for gorgeous views, relaxation, or for lunch, snacks, and beverages. Inside and outside deck seating is available overlooking Lake Superior. The Summit Chalet at Lutsen Mountains also hosts our Summit Chalet weddings, our premier destination wedding facility. Enjoy the mountaintop hiking trails, scenic overlooks, and fresh air. The Mountain Tram makes Moose Mountain the most accessible year-round mountaintop destination in Mid-America.

Enjoyed the quiet ride with scenic views. I would recommend this especially to those who don't want to ski but want to get great views of the resort.

Wow - was I impressed by this resort. For a midwest area it's HUGE, and has a lot of skiing terrain available. I had a blast, and skied the entire place - I'm spoiled now.

We rode the tram with the whole family. Gorgeous views along the way and at the top. The staff were very friendly, we were the last guests up for the day and they waited very patiently for our family to venture around and take pictures.

If you like the outdoors, and ventures away from populated areas this is the place to be winter or summer. Excellent service and food . Excellent accommodations. A romantic place for relaxation and rest.

Yes I believe there is but I think it’s pretty high. I remember thinking we could easily have my family of five in there with no issues.
