Summertime fun abounds in the Sawtooth Mountains where visitors can escape the heat with the cool, fresh air thanks to Lake Superior. At Eagle Ridge Resort, guests enjoy a schedule of complimentary activities including Voyageur canoe tours, naturalist programs, campfires, and more. Not only that, but guests are right on-site for a few of the North Shore's most popular attractions. The Alpine Slide is a favorite for kids of all ages; the exhilarating ride down this luge-type slide twists and turns its way down Eagle Mountain. And, the Summit Express Gondola is the Midwest's only gondola; the eight-minute ride takes you over the Poplar River, through the woods to the top of Moose Mountain. On Moose Mountain you will find the Summit Chalet, a great place to eat, relax, and enjoy the 100-mile views over Lake Superior on the expansive outdoor deck, as well as hiking trails, (including the famed Superior Hiking Trail) that traverse the Sawtooth ridgeline for second-to-none views of the Superior National Forest and Lake Superior.
Summit Express Gondola
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.
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.
