The Summit Express Gondola at Lutsen Mountains glides from summit to summit, offering views of some of Cook County’s most dramatic scenery–from the Poplar River Valley and the rugged north shore of Lake Superior to the surrounding peaks of the Sawtooth Mountains.
People of all ages can enjoy this gentle yet stunning aerial ride. Climb in, soak up the view, and watch the valley floor for wildlife. Previous riders have spotted northern favorites like moose, timber wolves, eagles and bears.
Once you reach the summit, stop in the mountain top Summit Chalet for a quick bite with a view. Take a stroll on the mountaintop hiking trails to the scenic overlooks. In the fall the endless view of a healthy maple forest is the stuff dreams are made of. The Summit Express Gondola makes Moose Mountain the most accessible year-round mountain top destination in Mid-America.
Whether you are a honeymooning couple, a lively family, a hiker or an art buff, the Mountain Tram will give you a new perspective on Cook County. The Mountain Tram at Lutsen Mountains is part of Sawtooth Park, which is also home to the thrilling Alpine Slide.
