Nub's Nob

Nub's Nob underwent major expansion for the '98 season, with twelve new runs and a new quad chair on to Pintail Peak, backed up by more snowmaking and grooming capacity. The following season, the resort's 40th anniversary, a further two slopes were added taking the total neatly up to 40. Snowmaking and grooming were also upgraded. All runs face Little Traverse Bay, making the area unique in Midwestern skiing, having south-western exposure to protect them from the cold north winds of the Michigan winter.


The American ski resort of Nub's Nob is at an altitude of 278m.

Nub's Nob has direct access to 44 marked pistes, served by a total of 8 ski lifts.
