Tax Day skiing: April 15th at Nubs Nob
"April 15, 2014 - I went skiing behind Nubs Nob on the snowmobile trail and woods and Nubs Nob today. It was great. Fresh inch of snow covered a deep hard pack. Forecast looks like the snow will be around a little longer. Nubs is closed and not grooming anymore unfortunately. Check out the pic. Lots of snow. - John Goble.
