Family Skiing At Nub's Nob

Jan 18, 2008
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.

Those who are new to skiing or relatively inexperienced can take advantage of free ski lessons at Nub's Nob resort. Parents can carefree ski lessons when they enroll their kids at the Nub's Cubs Childcare Center.

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.

If you're an advanced skier, visit the Ski School at Nub's Nob for training in racing. Advanced and expert skiers can sign up for racing leagues and take part in many seasonal league events.

If you need equipment, you can rent it at the resort. A general store is also available with gloves, hats, neck warmers and a variety of other items. Visit the technology center when you need to have your skis tuned or fixed.

You're bound to work up an appetite on the slopes, and there are several options to satisfy your hunger. The cafeteria is open for breakfast and lunch, and a "brown bag" room is available for anyone bringing their own lunch.

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.

When it comes to a fun family ski vacation, Nub's Nob is definitely the place to be. From beginners to expert skiers interested in racing and skill events, there is a wealth of things to see and do. You may actually find it hard to decide 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.
