Like I stated in the title, our annual trip to Nubs has become a family tradition. We live in the Milwaukee area and used to ski Nubs quite a bit when we lived in Michigan. We've since introduced our kids to Nubs with an annual trip there each January. They love it as well!
It's never crowded and the snow is always in great shape. My kids have had lessons there and the teachers are friendly and effective. The lodge is quaint and the food at the cafeteria is pretty good. Kids love the gelato stand.
To sum it up, it's my favorite place to ski in the midwest. It really is a hidden gem and I can't wait to go back later this month.
