You can find resorts with higher elevation in other parts of the country, but you won't find a better, happier place on earth. The snowmaking capability, the ski school, the lodge and cafeteria, and the experience are second to none. And it's the home of the Wintersteiger! Seriously. It's the best place on Earth.

The ski area is well groomed and has a diverse selection of runs so that skiers of all abilities will have fun. We started making the trek here 3 years ago and love it. The staff is nice and the guests are welcoming.

This is a very family-friendly ski resort. They have an excellent ski school program for novice skiers of all ages. They offer a variety of terrain, all expertly groomed. The cafeteria serves excellent wholesome soups, salads, sandwiches and fresh pizza. They also have that provides burgers, hot dogs, and fish sandwiches.

Favorite place to ski in Michigan. It's less crowded than other places. I love the 4-hr lift ticket that's available. A couple hills have great views of the bay. Lots of great intermediate skiing. Unfortunately, the ski runs are short, but this is Michigan, not Colorado!

This is where the locals ski! They are known for their snow making. Cafeteria and bar (for adults only). Great food. Great skiing. End of the season party is fantastic.

We just went there to meet friends that were skiers. They ski there all the time, but we don't ski. We met them for lunch and it was really good food and very reasonable. Great gift shop too.

We love Nubs Nob! Admittedly we do like the variety of skiing in the Petoskey area, and do rotate our visits between Nubs, Boyne Highlands and Boyne Mountain, but Nubs is always our first stop of the year! They have a great variety of slopes and lifts (including a free beginners hill), and the service is always friendly and prompt!!... More

Skiing was awesome! No lift lines at all. After skiing for several hours we decided to have lunch and a drink. Wrong. No kids in the restaurant/bar on the weekends. No alcohol out of the bar. Only 1 location that serves alcohol. Really wanted to enjoy a drink while relaxing and eating.
