Join the Crew at Nub’s Nob this winter! We are hiring for many positions, simply fill out an application and give us a call at (231) 526-2131 to set-up a time for an interview. Nub’s Nob is a great place to work filled with friendly faces and fringe benefits if you are a skier or snowboarder. Applications are available right here.

Weather forecasters are predicting the formation of a La Nina over the next few months. This natural weather cycle is marked by cooler than average ocean water in the Pacific Ocean. Typically this means cooler temperatures in the upper Midwest. The cooler temperatures with warm water in  Lake Michigan is a great set-up for lake effect snowfall.

No long term weather outlook is a guarantee, but things are looking promising for another great season of skiing and riding at Nub’s Nob.
