Skied Saturday 1/23/16 and the skiing was incredible. They received upwards of 3 feet the week of when we got there. The runs are very fun, so many fun Blues to go down, even the greens to get from one side of the mountain to the other are very enjoyable. The snow was nothing short of perfect. We never waited...

I visited nub's on a whim with some friends and found a challenging yet very skiable mountain. It was a chilly day with a strong wind coming straight up the front side of the mountain... Luckily, the backside was well protected from the wind and I found these narrower, tree lined trails to be just right! I never waited more... More

Went on a week day, and it snowed all day! Some parts were being groomed, but some you made "first tracks". It's a fun place: I'm here every season.

We had an awesome time at Nubs Nob! We all commented how friendly everyone was there!! Staff inside and out were very friendly and helpful going the extra mile to ask you if you wanted help to broom cleaning the lift seats! Conditions were great and no lines all day on Saturday 1/16/2016. Had a blast and recommend to all... More

We love skiing at Nubs Nob. The snow making and grooming are second to none. The ski school was great for my kids. We love the friendly vibe this place offers.

Tough start for the holiday season from mother nature, but Nubs has risen to the occasion. Making snow all weekend plus 8-12 inches in the forecast they are ready to roll, 8 runs open yesterday and more lifts and runs today. They are all about the snow.

Our family of seven skied here on the Monday before Christmas and the Saturday after Christmas. We were visiting from central Illinois. The natural weather didn't cooperate but Nub's Nob did a great job of compensating! What friendly service too! Everyone, and I mean everyone we encountered, was so friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the slopes, restaurant and bar. We... More

Northern Michigan has been struggling this season with not enough cold or snow to open. Luckily on the last day of an up north weekend Nubs Nob was able to open a couple of it's runs. Sad that it was only a few, but that's not their fault. The open runs were nice and snowy. Staff were friendly and helpful,... More

We have gone to Boyne Highlands for the past 4 years the week between Christmas and New Year's with our kids. Last year we decided to give Nub's a try and it was fabulous. The weather was horrible but they still pulled out all the stops to make sure the lifts were safe, the runs were groomed and the staff... More
