Lutsen Mountains is open for skiers and snowboarders, along with their new, high-speed lift.

In a special ceremony Friday, the ski resort marked its grand opening. Helicopters flew supports for the six-passenger Caribou Express into their places back in September.

Lutsen tells Eyewitness News that the new lift will cut ride time from the bottom to the top of the mountain from 10 minutes, down to about 3 minutes.
