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.

Nubs has some very fine downhill trails with lots of variety. If you like glade skiing they have done a good job of creating many glad trails with well-cleared underbrush. Snow and trail conditions were good when we went. The tree-lined trails are pretty. My only complaint is that the day skiing shuts down promptly at 4:30. Other places I... More

We've skied at Nubs a few times and while it doesn't compare to the Rockies, it's impressive for the Midwest. The terrain is much more varied and extensive than at Boyne Highlands across the street. Snow coverage is excellent, grooming is impressive, and the glade skiing is nicely maintained and free from underbrush.

Nubs has the best snowboarding in northern lower. Different run styles for all different skill levels. The instructors are always great. Each year we have private lessons for our daughters and the instructors do a wonderful job. Keep up the good work Nubs!

I broke my zipper, and Cathee was able to completely fix my zipper so that I could get through the day with my jacket. She did it with a great smile on her face. Thank you Cathee! She is friendly and helpful! The rest of the team seems equally as positive. Booya Nubs Nob!

The staff at Nubs Nob were the friendliest people ever and made us feel like we were special. I have been to several mountains and they were definitely the most helpful.

Nubs Nob is one of the best ski resorts in Michigan. If your looking for a family friendly or even just a friendly ski resort in Michigan -- this is it. The slopes are well groomed, the lift operators are friendly and the food is fresh and homemade. Love the chilli, chicken salad and chicken noodle soup. Best place to... More
