The Origin Story – A Brief History of Mont du Lac

Mont du Lac was founded in 1948 by Tony Wise after he saw a prime opportunity for a western-style ski hill in the bowl near Superior, Wisconsin. 

For decades, the chalet at the bottom of the hill served its purpose and brought winter enthusiasts from all over the country to its little corner of Wisconsin. It wasn’t until 2008 that summer activities started to make their way into the Mont du Lac complex and, in 2017, the impressive Trophy Lodge at the summit of the hill was established.

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, WI.

Winter Fun on the Hill

Tony Wise had a vision in 1948 to create a ski area nestled into the northwoods of Wisconsin with an uninhibited view of all the beauty it offers. Now, 75 years later, that vision is still alive. 

This 10-acre ski resort is perfect for beginner and advanced shredders alike! The hill features:
