Alpine Slide at Lutsen Mountains

Alpine Slide – the North Shore Tummy Tickler

The Alpine Slide whisks you down Lutsen Mountains’ Eagle Mountain on this twisting, turning bobsled-like ride. It’s a rip-roarin’ good time for the entire family!

Start with a scenic chairlift ride to the top of Eagle Mountain. (This is Lutsen’s Eagle Mountain, not to be confused with the other nearby Eagle Mountain, the tallest in Minnesota.) At the top, take your bobsled to the start of the concrete track, and hop on. Thereโ€™s an incredible view of Lake Superior from here, in case you were wondering :). Feel free to walk around the grassy mountain top to enjoy the views and scenic lookout.ย

Great view from the top of the Alpine Slide!

Next, take off down the half-mile serpentine track, banking around every turn, and dipping down each hill. There are two parallel tracks so you can ride side-by-side. And yes, it has brakes so you can go at your own pace.

Fun to play and fun to watch!

Spectators can gather at the bottom to watch. The landing area has viewing platforms, picnic tables, and a food truck.ย ย
