We hope you made it out to enjoy skiing and riding with us the last two weekends. We are currently closed midweek to make more snow and plan to reopen this Saturday (12/10) for the weekend. The weather forecast predicts winter making a strong arrival by midweek and you know we’ll be making snow as hard as we can when it arrives. All 292 snowguns are ready to go and our World Class Snowmaking Crew is chomping at the bit to fire them back up. For the most current snowmaking and slope report, check out our progress on the web at nubsnob.com and select the conditions tab as we update information there daily.

We are open on 3 slopes and 2 lifts! Smooth Sailing (intermediate), Sno Pro (intermediate), and Big Time (beginner) are all open.  Early season conditions and slopes widths will be the norm, rentals, ski school and a limited menu in the cafeteria will be available also.

***SPECIAL EARLY SEASON RATES!***

$35 adult/teen/senior and $30 child (9-12) per day and $30/adult and $25/child rentals. Children 8 and under ski free any day with a skiing guardian – 70 and over are free every day! YAHOO!

Despite the warm weather over the past week Nub’s Nob will be open this coming weekend. We plan to run the Green and Purple chairlift with Big Time (beginner), Smooth Sailing (intermediate) and Sno Pro (intermediate) open. In addition we will have a small terrain park with three features open at the bottom of Smooth Sailing. Early season conditions and slopes widths will be the norm, rentals, ski school and a limited menu in the cafeteria will be available also. In the meantime check our conditions page for updates and give us a hand and THINK SNOW!!!

Thanks for a great four day weekend of skiing including our season opener on Thanksgiving Day! We will be closed for the week as we seek to make more snow and get ready for the upcoming weekend. We plan to reopen on Saturday & Sunday with 3 slopes (Sno Pro, Smooth Sailing and Big Time), 2 lifts (Green and Purple) and a small terrain park. Early season conditions and slopes widths will be the norm, rentals, ski school and a limited menu in the cafeteria will be available also.

Early Season skiing continues on two of our favorite intermediate runs- Sno Pro and Smooth Sailing. We also have our FREE beginner area open with Big Time.  This gives us 3 runs open from 9 till 4:30 thru Sunday and we were able to set up 3 hits in a temporary terrain park between the bottom of the Blue and Green lifts!

 

Happy Thanksgiving from our Crew to yours. All of us at Nub’s have much to be thankful for as we celebrate the start of the ski season today. The Green and Purple lifts will run from 9 till 4:30 thru Sunday. We have two runs open today with Big Time and Smooth Sailing. We hope to add at least another run by tomorrow and have a few features set in a temporary terrain park. Be sure to thank a snowmaker today and enjoy the first day of the 2016/17 season.

 

YAHOO and THINK SNOW!!!!

We’ll be open from 9 till 4:30 Thursday thru Sunday on 2 slopes and 2 lifts. Our World Class snowmaking Crew has made the most of this early season cold snap and we can’t wait to go skiing and riding! Early season conditions and slopes widths will be the norm, rentals, ski school and a limited menu in the cafeteria will be available also. We’ll even have a few features set up in a temporary terrain park at the bottom of the Blue lift by Friday morning!  The plan is to close down Monday next week to make more snow and look to reopen the following weekend.

Temperatures have remained favorable for snowmaking and our guns have continued to run for 56 hours as of 8 a.m. this morning. The Crew has been working hard to make as much snow as possible. Stay tuned for updates on opening day and THINK SNOW!

The snow guns turned on at midnight on Sunday morning and they have not been turned off! Our world-class Snow Crew will continue to make as much snow as mother nature will allow. Stay tuned for updates on our progress.

Early Sunday morning the Nub’s Snow Crew fired up the snow guns! Our award-winning Crew will continue to make snow as long as the weather will allow. Give us a hand and pray for cold and Think SNOW!!!

Despite warm fall weather lingering well into November, it looks like there is finally snowmaking weather on the horizon. The current weekend forecast is showing temperatures dipping below freezing, so rest assured that the most award-winning Snow Crew in the Midwest is ready and waiting to turn on the guns and take advantage of our first opportunity to make snow this season! We typically need 72 hours of running the snow guns to produce enough to open, so keep your fingers crossed that the cooler temperatures extend into the week. Give the world-class Nub’s Crew a hand and THINK SNOW!

We are patiently waiting for mother nature to bring the cold weather. The Crew is busy going through our snow guns in preparation. You can watch a short new webcast to get a glimpse of flushing snow guns.

The Nub’s Crew recently completed load testing our chairlifts, this is something we do at the start of every season. In a load test water buckets are set on the chairs to simulate a fully loaded lift. With the lift loaded we test all brakes and auxiliary power. The State of Michigan requires a load test once every seven years. At Nub’s Nob we load test every lift every year. All of us at Nub’s Nob take safety on the slopes and lifts very seriously. That is the reason we go the extra mile to do all we can to provide a safe and fun place to ski or ride with family and friends.

Now is a great time to get your gear ready for snow. The Nub’s Nob Technology Center is offering our “World Cup Tune” for just $30 until opening day! This tune includes an edge sharpen, stone grind, hot wax and a binding check. If you would like your ski bindings checked for proper release please bring in one ski boot. Skis and boards can be dropped off Monday thru Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Don’t miss this great opportunity to save some money and to get ready for our favorite season!

NOAA (The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) is currently predicting average to below average temperatures this winter with above average snowfall for the Great Lakes Region. Given last winters record late start we are glad to see a positive outlook for the approaching ski season. Click here to read the full article.
