Lutsen Mountains Expansion On Track as Feds Launch Environmental Study
The U.S. Forest Service is collecting public input on Lutsen Mountains’ plans to roughly double its North Shore ski area overlooking Lake Superior.
The federal agency recently gave official notice of plans to conduct an environmental impact study to determine whether to grant Lutsen a special-use permit to build on 495 acres of public land. The expansion, a longtime goal of the family-owned business, would include seven chairlifts, new ski runs, two guest service buildings, a mountaintop chalet and more parking.
