We visited Nub's Nob over this past winter for a 3 day ski break with 2 kids (ages 5 and 7) and here are some highlights: -Great runs for all levels, especially the beginner area. It's nice and wide for easy turns and setup so that it doesn't get too crowded. -Nice green and blue runs to build your skills... More

Nubs could even be the Best in the Midwest!!! Very friendly family atmosphere here. This is not a "party spot" for those of you inclined to be party animals. Nubs has the Best snowmaking crew in Michigan. Everyone is friendly here. The cafeteria has very good food at reasonable prices for a ski hill (less then what you pay across... More

I have to say that amongst all the resorts in Michigan, Nub's Nob probably has the best skiing (although not the highest vertical). Great variety of trails, beautiful views from the top of the Pintail Peak, and friendly staff. Compared to the two Boyne resorts in the area, the big advantage (for us) of Nub's Nob is that there is... More

Have been skiing Nubs Nob since 1972. Always friendly folks and they do a fantastic job making snow and grooming. Food is above average but expensive (as most ski resorts).

Just wish it was not so costly, that is the only downfall. My daughters love it, I have snowboarded Nubs for more than 20 years. I will probably ride here until I physically cannot do it anymore but the prices went up and that is rough for a family. I do like that they offer a beginner chair for free... More

After years of skiing at Nub’s Nob, located in Harbor Springs, Michigan, I can easily say that it is one of the best family vacation spots I have ever visited. I’ve grown up going to this snow covered mountain with my family, and it could not be more perfect. The cozy resort is home to 246 acres of pure fun... More

What a great season so far! The snow this year has been endless and awesome. With all the snow at Nubs the entire resort has been open including the variety of Glades! This makes Nubs so versitile. I have basically been running my all mountain ski's there this year so I can mix up the groomers, bumps and glades all... More

I have only skied in the Midwest States and Nub's Nob is my favorite. Cozy, fun, friendly are words to describe. I really enjoy racing in the beer league during the weekdays. The staff here is all about service. Plenty of variety of terrain to keep all skill levels happy.

Attended a ski school there and learned a lot in the time we were there. The ski school director was fantastic as well as the General Manager!!! Thumbs up to them for helping our first time school experience be a positive one! Highly recommend this resort!! Try to bring your own food if you can - it can get really... More

I hesitate to review because I don't want this gem of a ski resort to become any more popular. The best grooming, snowmaking, and lift operators in the entire area. Great hills, friendly people -- overall excellence. Even the food was good.
