Anyone ever hear of this place? It is ranked #4 after Mt. Sunapee in grooming and I believe it also is top 10 for terrain parks by Ski Magazine. I know a lot of people do not trust Ski's ratings, but it is still recognized. That is pretty impressive for a Michigan place.

Michigan areas have always been leaders in lifts/snowmaking/grooming due to the competitive nature and somewhat level playing field (whereas we have small, medium, and large ski areas, they have a whole bunch from 200-600' vertical, so there's not much to stand on if you don't have a nicely set up and maintained area).

Being from the midwest I'm thrilled to see a "local" resort make the lists... however I can't help but wonder if a bunch of local skiers just didn't get to gether and stuff the ballot box. With only 6000 surveys it wouldn't take too much effort to get 4-500 people to creativly influence the results.

I think this mostly because there are no other midwest resorts listed. If there were it would make things much more believeable.

Also... Check out the snowmaking article that starts on page 186 I believe. The company that I work for built the pumpstation that is pictured in the lower left corner of page 188....

I was curious about this also. I am not sure how Ski magazine does it, but this could be a factor.

Having grown up skiing in NH, VT & ME and relocating in my 20's to Northern Indiana, I can attest that the Nub's Nob rating for grooming is correct. Although vertically challenged at about 500 feet, they get an amazing amount of terrain from the mountain which, despite weather conditions has phenomenal snow. Their grooming rivals any I have skied (east or west) and they probably have much better groomers than they need (Piston Bully Winch Cats . . .)

Nubs has great trails, some on their Pintail Peak remind me of eastern trails, steep and narrow! You can always count on Nub's for great snow!
