Despite a very warm November it does look like there is snowmaking weather on the horizon. The current forecast is for night time temperatures to dip below freezing this weekend. Rest assured that we are ready to turn on the guns and take advantage of every opportunity to make snow. Typically we need about 72 hours of running our snow guns to be able to open. Give the Nub’s Crew a hand and THINK SNOW!

Check-out this new webcast featuring the famous Nub’s Nob World Cup Tune. Pat Dueweke our professional ski tuner is offering a stone grind, edge sharpen, wax and binding check all for $30! This tune is accomplished using our Wintersteiger Mercury shuttle, an incredibly precise tuning machine that will bring your gear back to life. This offer is good until opening day, so now is the time to get your skis and snowboards ready for our favorite season. Drop off your skis and boards between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. If you would like your bindings tested bring in one ski boot.

At 83 years old Larry Tomie of Sault Ste. Marie, ON is still buckling his race boots and competing at the highest level available to his age group. This summer Larry flew to Chile to compete along side of 180 athletes from 17 nations. Larry had 18 others skiing in his age group. The international competition featured a 62 gate slalom course, a Super G and two GS courses. Larry was first place in every discipline earning the overall Gold Medal. Larry will continue competition this winter traveling to Aspen and France for the World Championships.

Off the slopes Larry experienced an earthquake measuring 8.3 on the richter scale while in Chile. He admitted this is not something he hopes to do again. The quake shook the hotel and caused massive destruction in the area where he was staying.

Larry can be spotted at Nub’s Nob on a weekly basis in the winter and is a regular on the Blue Lift. When asked about why he considers Nub’s Nob his home ski area his answer was simple, “the people”. All of us at Nub’s Nob wish Larry the best in all of his racing endeavors this winter. If you see him on the hill this season tell him congratulations, that is if you can catch him.

This past weekend we actually had measurable snow on the ground at Nub’s Nob. Our film Crew put together an excellent video to document the first flakes of the season. Check-out the new video and help us THINK SNOW!

The Nub’s Crew just completed load testing all of our chairlifts.  In a load test buckets of water are placed on the chairs to simulate a fully loaded lift. With the lift loaded we test the brakes, safety circuits, and auxiliary power.  The State of Michigan requires a load test once every five years, but at Nub’s Nob we test every lift every year.  Chairlift safety is taken very seriously here, and you can rest assured that we are doing everything possible to make your trip uphill as safe and enjoyable as possible.
