Give us a hand and THINK SNOW!

The 2020/2021 season was different to say the least, and thanks to YOUR efforts it will go down as a season to remember.
We can’t imagine what the year would have looked like without the understanding and support of our patrons.
Give yourselves a big round of applause 👏 ... #nubsnobAt 4:30 our lifts will close for the season!

Nub’s Nob Ski Area – Snowmaking

Great Snow! It’s the single most important ingredient at a ski/snowboard resort and the #1 priority at Nub’s Nob. Without great snow, nothing else matters. While our natural snowfall average hovers around the 123” per year mark, artificial snowmaking is still the lifeblood of the area. Our experience, commitment and dedication to producing the finest man made snow surfaces is the cornerstone of our mission.

It takes a lot of snow guns to make snow.

292 of our patented Nub’s Nob snow guns are used to cover the entire area. This gun was invented and patented right here at Nub’s and is the original energy efficient fan gun the rest of the world is still catching up with. These guns can turn over 50 gallons of water per minute into snow at temperatures below 29 degrees and over 100 gallons of water per minute in snow at temperatures below 17 degrees. We like it cold!

Jim Bartlett has been the general manager of Nub’s Nob Ski Area in Harbor Springs since 1977. In this video, he talks about Nub’s Nob’s arsenal of snowguns that includes the world’s largest — known affectionately to the Nub’s crew as “The Hammer” — and how they supplement nature’s snowfall each season to create first-class conditions for skiers and snowboarders. Nub’s Nob plans to open for the season Nov. 30, 2012.
