Scenic Chairlift Rides



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. 

Guests have access to both our Ridgeview Overlook Walking Trail (0.3 miles) and Wynne Lake Vista Trail (0.8 miles) from the top of the chairlift. 

All scenic chairlift participants must sign a one-time online waiver or fill out in person. 

Chairlift season closure date is weather dependent due to highly variable October weather conditions.
