Bridge – Lutsen Mountains, MN

This was one of the first lifts built at Lutsen and remains an important link between Moose and Eagle mountains.
The bottom bullwheel rides on rails.
View down near the base. A second lift used to begin near the same spot and run roughly parallel.
Part way up, there is a summer only loading station for alpine slide riders.

    Sometimes this lift has wait times of probably 30 minutes

      Yes, the lines here can get pretty crazy in mid/late afternoon on a busy day. Could definitely use a capacity upgrade.

    If the expansion is approved, this should become a 3,600 pph 6 pack. Perhaps D-line if the have the money. With current waits of up 30 minutes at 1200 pph, 3,600 pph makes some sense.

      Although that would probably be more than the mountain could handle. A 2,400pph high speed quad is probably the best answer.

          Would they have to do a half station?
