The staff was very friendly. Great place for a family. Pricing was about average for the area. The runs were groomed well. Very enjoyable for all ages! I was happy to have an attendant at the chair lift on the beginner hill for my daughter!

Nubs has the best and most varied runs in lower Michigan. Never seems to get as crowded as the Boynes or Crystal. Food is just ok.

I don't know how they do it, but the snow is always amazing. Best collection of blue groomers around.

We enjoyed skiing Nub's, as the mountain was not at all busy. There were plenty of runs for green, blue, and black skiers, and the runs were well-groomed and clearly marked. While the lodge was a day lodge only, the pub served great local brews,...More

Great time for the kids on the slopes and I did 2 awesome loops with my snowshoes. The lodge is always warm and inviting. Prices are a little high for snacks but that is pretty typical at a ski lodge.

You should be fine in the lodge, as the fireplace, bar, and cafeteria are all on the main floor. As well, you can see some of the slope from that area.
