Slow Lifts (If They Had Just One High-Speed Lift Nubs Would Trample the Competition)
Nubs has got grooming perfected. This is a fun, friendly place with experienced skiers/boarders on the slopes. The food in the retro lodge is good and the vibe is laid-back.
I have skied a lot of places, including top rated resorts in Canada and in the US Rockies, and Nubs could give them all a run for their money when it comes to grooming. This is the best kept secret in Midwest skiing.
Their lifts aren't in bad shape, they're just slow. Part of me would love to see them upgrade and put just one high speed chair in, however, I know that would probably draw more people, which would probably make it less ideal for skiing. If you don't mind slower lifts, this is the ideal place to be skiing in the midwest.
