Mont Du Lac celebrates 75 years of recreation in Superior

Mont Du Lac / Submitted

Mont du Lac has been a staple in the Midwestern ski world for three-quarters of a century and celebrated with a party on New Year’s Eve and New Year's Day. The resort was founded in 1948 by Tony Wise after he saw a prime opportunity for a western-style ski hill in the bowl near the St. Louis River.

Today, Mont du Lac is thriving with year-round activities. Primed with modern hospitality, good food and old-fashioned nostalgia, Mont du Lac has positioned itself as a cornerstone of the outdoor community in Superior.

The main winter attraction of the resort is the alpine hill. The 10-acre bowl is perfect for beginner and advanced enthusiasts alike. The hill features 11 runs, a double chair lift, a high-speed tow rope, over 20 park features and lessons for beginner skiers and snowboarders.

The tubing hill is also fun for the whole family. With over 500 feet of tubing lanes, the adrenaline rush is unlike any other. Tubing hill tickets tend to sell out quickly, especially on weekends, so visitors are encouraged to order them early on Mont du Lac’s website.

Summer adventures are also available at the resort and are fun for all ages. These activities include disc golf, mountain biking, archery, summer slides, guided fishing and The Big Kahuna water park.

A newer endeavor of the resort is its marina and river tubing adventures. Thrill seekers can rent jet skis and other speedy watercraft to explore the St. Louis River and other nearby waterways.

For those interested in slower, more relaxing opportunities, Mont du Lac offers water tubing down the St. Louis river in 2-3 hour unguided trips.

Mont du Lac has accommodations year-round. Visitors can book a room, suite or cabin within the resort for non-stop fun. The Trophy Lodge also offers food that hits the spot after a long day on the hill.
