We have been skiing in Michigan for over four decades and have never encountered snow making and grooming at the same level of expertise as we found at Nub's this past Saturday. The runs were in great condition especially for the numerous freeze thaw cycles we've had this winter. We loved the peaceful, wooded setting of the runs on Pintail... More

Nub's Nob is an inviting little ski resort with plenty of hills for all levels of skier. The staff is always smiling and accommodating, including the lift operators. The place is small enough where you can find everyone, usually camped our around the large fireplace or hanging out in Nub's Pub. Brown Bag Cafeteria has plenty of quick food options,... More

Nubs is in my opinion the best place to ski in Michigan. The staff is friendly and the snow grooming is second to none. I highly recommend Nubs.

My husband and I enjoy snowboarding together. This was our first time to Nub's Nob and we had an excellent time. They were calling for rain but it was a great day out. We spent most of our time on Pintail Peak. But the only way to get to it is by taking Duck Soup, which is a flat run.... More

If you're looking for groomed runs and customer service, go to Nubs. A smaller resort with a focus on quality and a perfect place to take the family. Younger kids can be more independent here, safely so everyone can have a great time. There are condos for rent at the bottom of the "back hills" but they are not part... More

Nub's Nob used to be a family ski destination with our young kids and extended family. We always liked the variety of runs here and it seemed like you could always find your family members on the hill and not get too separated. While these qualities are still present, I feel Nub's has not improved its amenities in too long... More

With winter being so long and cold, it’s often hard to find enough stuff to do when trying to fill up those sometimes unbearable days. Luckily, Nubs Nob always comes through. This ski/snowboard resort in Harbor Springs, Michigan is full of amazing runs, great food, and nice people. My winter memories have been molded by this resort. There is a... More

This is the best ski resort in lower Michigan that I have been too! It is underrated compared to Boyne. They have around 50 runs of all difficulty levels with lots on tree skiing. Didn't check out the lodge so I can't comment on that but everything else was fabulous. It was a busy and cold day and they have... More
