Nub’s Nob Ski Vacations

Nub’s Nob Ski Vacations

If you will be in Michigan, you should definitely visit

Nub’s Nob Ski Resort. Nub’s Nob has what is

considered to be the Midwest’s best snow, and the

resort has a reputation for being a family friendly

mountain. Generations of families have brought their

children here for their very first ski run.

The mountain layout is fairly simple with an elevation

of 1338 feet and a vertical drop of 427 feet. There are

43 trails serviced by eight chair lifts. Boasting one of

the best skiing and snowboarding schools in the

country, both private and group lessons are available.

If you are brand new to the sport, you can even learn

to ski free, and take advantage of Nub’s Cubs

Childcare Center while you learn.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking that intermediate

or expert skiers won’t find any challenges waiting for

them at Nub’s Nob! The terrain is varied, and you will

find challenges. Night Skiing is also available. The

Ski School offers training programs for advanced

skiers who are interested in racing, and many racing

events are held at the resort. You can signup for race

leagues at the resort, and many league events are

planned each season.

Equipment rental is available, and there is a General

Store right inside the lodge, where you can purchase

gloves, hats, and neck warmers among a variety of

other items. You should also visit the technology

center to have your ski’s tuned or repaired.

You won’t go hungry either! Nub’s Nob Cafeteria is

open for breakfast and lunch, and if you brought your

own lunch, you can eat in the ‘brown bag’ room.

Nub’s Winter Garden serves grilled burgers when the

weather allows. Pintail Peak Warming Hut is located

at the top of the Black Lift. Here, you can enjoy

amazing views while enjoying home made soups and


Nub’s Nob is the place to go if you want to have a

great family ski vacation or if you are already an

expert skier interested in racing and skill events.

There is plenty to do and see. In fact, you may find

that you have a problem deciding which activity to

participate in first! Don’t worry about missing

anything, though if you want to ski now and board

later, you can do that. Most events are planned for

the weekends, so arrange your schedule so that you

are able to attend or participate in the planned events.
