Nubs Nob Reviews & Tips (6)

Nubs Nob is a hidden jem of a great place to ski. Many advanced trails with good snow coverage. Very friendly staff and never crowded every time we ski here. Definitely on par with Boyne Highlands. Great job on running this resort- it is always a blast to ski here.

While Nubs does not have any express lifts, it is easily my favorite out of the Northern Michigan selections. A lot of variation in the terrain suits riders of all ability levels.

My favorite place to sk and board, the new resturant on the back side is nice and the food was great but the grooming is the best and they groom twice a day so the evening sking is awsome also and they have slopes for everyone at any level ,the staff has all but once been awsome and the gelato what can ya say!! keep up the great job and see you on the slopes...

I love nubs ... but I took my date there for a weekend of skiing ... she broke her leg within the first hour ... the staff was great but naturally we had to leave for the hospital ... they wouldn't refund our lift or rental fees ... not even a credit toward future skiing ... I was bummed ... I would have thought they wouldn't be so greeady.

Great terrain for all levels of skiers, some of the best grooming and snow cover late in the season. Someone took my skis from the rack even before I started skiing, they gave me 2 days of free rental, it was wonderful. Fortunately someone turned in my skis a week later so I got them back. But they were so helpful, I love skiing Nubs. The staff is friendly and is passionate about their jobs.

Great place for families. Little ones ski free. Nubs is superior over Boyne Highlands & Mountain.
