Scenic Chairlift Rides

Giants Ridge is now offering a whole new view of the region – atop ‘the Ridge.”

The “Sarajevo Express” chairlift (a high-speed quad lift), transports guests to the top of the Giants Ridge mountain where they may enjoy majestic views of the Superior National Forest and surrounding area.

The view from the Giants Ridge mountain is truly one of the Iron Range’s hidden gems and creates a whole new
Giants Ridge-experience for resort guests.
