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.

We are not into skiing but the ride in spring, summer and especially fall is a worthy adventure that we share with family and guests.

The views of fall color over the mountains were amazing on the tram ride! The folks at the top and bottom were friendly and helpful. The hiking to the outlook view areas at the top was fantastic!

We took the tram up to the lodge for a fall wedding. The view, all 360 degrees of it, was phenomenal. The ride is extremely safe, fast and an amazing way to see the vast scenery

I love riding in the gondolas up the mountain. You have beautiful 360 degree views. They are comfortable and it's quick ride to the top of the mountain where there are even more breathtaking views of the beautiful fall leaves. Highly recommend.

Highlight of our trip to the North Shore during fall color season! Spectacular view. Completely accessible to my large electric wheelchair -- just drove right in easily. Staff helpful and friendly. Well worth the price.

We were a bit under-awed by this experience. It made for a pricey afternoon...perhaps we would have enjoyed it more on a really beautiful clear-sky day. The moments of really beautiful views were quite brief and we saw things more lovely the next day, when...More
