Lutsen Mountains Master Development Plan (MDP) to expand recreation services onto adjoining Superior National Forest (SNF) lands has been accepted by the U.S. Forest Service.

The next step will be for Lutsen Mountains to apply for a Ski Area Special Use Permit (SUP). Processing the permit will require environmental review and analysis, consideration of alternatives and impacts.  Plans include winter operations, ski runs and visitor services. 

The Master Development Plan will guide the next phase of planning, environmental review and permitting.  As a part of that process, Lutsen Mountains is hosting two public meetings on June 1.

Cook County Open House:              

  • When:  Thursday, June 1 from 10 a.m. - noon.
  • Where: Summit Chalet, Lutsen Mountains 

Duluth Open House:

  • When: Thursday, June 1 from 4 p.m. - 6 p.m.
  • Where: Pier B Resort, Duluth
