Nubs Nob 1/21/18

Day two of our trip and Bob's group had a change of plans to ski at Boyne Highlands and Jim and I wanted to ski a Nub Nob so we went are separate ways. We were booted up and skiing by 9;45. It was around 32 degrees out and the snow very firm and fast. We started on one side of the hill and worked our way to the other side and came back. By then it was time for lunch, more tailgating for lunch. After lunch we went back out and did the mostly the same thing the difference is the snow had softened up and the some of the glades came into play. Bob asked me which area I liked better and They are both good but they are two different types of resorts. Boyne has a small village at the base and there was lots of people and music at the base. The was a lot of energy in the air. Nubs is a day ski area and it was very quiet and layed back feeling. All in all we had a very fun trip and I want to than Bob for getting trip put together and Mark for feed us in Saturday night.

Boyne Highland is across the street from Nubs Nob. If you look carefully you might be able to see Bob skiing. Being 6' 8" he tends to stand out.

    Please teach this method to my "backyard areas" .  So simple, not intrusive on groomer fans.  I just don't get the resistance.  

    That looks like  a good decent pitch.  Ski that several times and tell me the mountain doesn't ski just a " little bit bigger".

    Absolutely Alex, imho Nubs is the best 427' vert hill I've ever skied. Ted can describe what he felt was" skied like 3 areas in 1".

    It just gives one raised in the east a short feel of skiing a good east short hill. Bumps, glades, groomers, a decent short pitch and COLORED Riblets.
    I was told by the GM anything is skiable in the boundaries even my favorite orangecycle trail that was roped off a couple years ago. I.e. Duck the rope and you won't lose your ticket skiing a former open liftline trail formerly on the trail map, he said so himself

    And if you want to bump they got um
