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.

You’ve got great choices today – amazing corduroy under sunny skies this morning and powder skiing this afternoon when 5″ to 8″ of snow is forecast to start falling.  Yahoo!

The forecast today is for temperatures in the mid 30’s with some sunshine! The glades, groomers, terrain parks and trails are all in great shape. Grab your skis and boards and head to Nub’s Nob for what should be an awesome day on the slopes.

Mother Nature is really making up for the tough start this winter as another 5″ of new snow fell overnight.  This brings our season total to 83″ with over 50″ of that total in the last two weeks!  Conditions continue to be excellent with more snow and great weather in the forecast over the weekend.  YAHOO!

It’s just another powder morning here at Nub’s with 6″ of light and fluffy freshies on the ground and still coming down.  That’s over 3′ of new snow in the last 7 days!  Conditions are excellent from the glades to the groomers and the parks.  YAHOO!

Nub’s Nob received another Lake Effect dump last night with over a foot of new snow in the last 24 hours!

Nub’s Nob has been blanketed with over a foot of fresh powder over the last three days and the lake effect is pouring on today! As of 10 p.m. we have received 12″ of snow since this morning! Skiing is excellent; winter is finally here!

Nub’s Nob received 5″ overnight and it’s still snowing! We are open on nearly 100% of our terrain and the conditions are excellent. Come on out and ski it for yourself.

Our world class snow crew pulled off another miracle this week allowing us to open Pintail Peak on only 2.5 days of snowmaking!  All the runs except Goose Bumps and EZ4U are ready to go and we’ll complete those when colder air returns beginning this Sunday.  The deli on Pintail Peak will be open this Saturday and Sunday serving our delicious home made soups, chili, sandwiches and desserts.  YAHOO!

The best snowmaking weather of the season arrived yesterday and our world class Snow Crew has been taking full advantage of it.  Not only are we really laying it down on Pintail Peak, but we are adding base to Valley, Birch Run, Smokey, Scarface, Chute, Big 4-0, Southwest Passage and Pleasantview.  We’ll have a few runs closed on the front and the south side today as we continue to make the most of the cold weather but the majority of these will reopen tomorrow.  YAHOO!

Mother Nature was kind to us on this first day of 2016 dropping a little over an inch of fresh on 31 slopes of skiing and riding overnight.  Conditions are excellent and we’re looking forward to another great day on the slopes.  Happy New Year!
