|Vacationing at Nub's Nob Ski Resort||| Print ||
If you spend some time in winter in Michigan, you should definitely visit Nub's Nob Ski Resort. Nub's Nob has what is widely considered to be the Midwest's best snow, and the resort has a distinction for being a family-friendly mountain. Generations of families have taken their children here for their very first ski run.
The layout of the mountain is fairly simple with an elevation of 1,338 feet and a vertical drop of 427 feet. There are 43 trails with eight chair lifts. Boasting one of the top skiing and snowboarding schools in the country, both private and group lessons are available. If you are brand inexperienced at the sport, you can even learn to ski free, and take advantage of Nub's Cubs Childcare Center while you learn.
But don't think that intermediate or expert skiers won't find any challenges waiting for them at Nub's Nob! The terrain is diverse, and you will find challenges. You can also ski at night for an extra challenge. The Ski School offers training programs for advanced skiers who are curious about racing, and many racing events are held at the resort. You can sign up for race leagues at the resort, and many league events are scheduled each season.
Equipment rental is available, and there is a general store located inside the lodge, where you can purchase gloves, hats, and neck warmers among a variety of
other items. You should also visit the technology center to have your skis tuned or fixed.
You won't be left hungry either! Nub's Nob Cafeteria is open for breakfast and lunch, and if you took your own lunch, you can eat in the 'brown bag' room. Nub's Winter Garden serves grilled burgers, weather permitting. Pintail Peak Warming Hut can be found at the top of the Black Lift. Here, you can enjoy breathtaking views while enjoying homemade soups and sandwiches.
Nub's Nob is the place to be if you want to have a fun family ski vacation, or if you are already an expert skier interested in racing and skill events. There is a wealth of things to see and do. In fact, you may find that you have a problem deciding which activity to do first! Don't worry about missing anything, though # if you want to ski right away and board later, you can do that. Most events are planned for the weekends, so arrange your schedule so that you can attend or participate in the planned events.
