15 Nov Snowmaking Update for November 15
WOW!!! Last night the temperatures dipped into the teens. This was a huge gift and the Nub’s Snow Crew took full advantage. These cold temperatures allowed our hard-working Crew to make rapid progress on our Frontside slopes. A warm up is predicted this morning which will force a shut down. The Crew will change gears from snowmaking to slope preparation for our season opener on Saturday, November 17.
Nub’s Nob will open this Saturday & Sunday! Smooth Sailing, Sno Pro, Smokey, Big Time, Easy Mile, Fun Bowl and the Cat Track will be ready to go. Daily lift tickets are just $40 or $30 for kids from 9 to 12 years old (70+ and 8 & under ski for free). All 21K of our XC trail system will also be packed and in early season condition. Give the Snow Crew a high five when you see them, they have been full throttle turning the place from green to white. This is 3rd earliest opening in our history. The earliest was in 1991 when we opened on November 9th.
The Green and Purple Lifts will spin from 9:00 am until 4:30 pm, while the Cafeteria, Nub’s Cubs Daycare, Winter Sports School, Rental, Nub’s Pub, the Tune Center and the General Store will all be open.
