A few words on the Snow at Nubs Nob

Nub's Nob has no detail snow data, but we estimate 140 inches snowfall due to moderate lake effect snow from Lake Michigan. However, terrain is generally too flat for deep powder skiing.

Accumulation and Preservation

Nub's Nob's cold climate facilitates early season snowmaking. Rain is less frequent than in the Northeast and rarely as intense. The limited acreage can be more easily restored with snowmaking and grooming than at larger and steeper areas in the Northeast. Relatively flat Midwest ski terrain will routinely melt/freeze in warm weather or March sun.
