Could have better snow making equipment.
Bittersweet Ski Resort is pretty nice for beginners. If you go to Cannonsburg it is a nice change from what they offer. They do not have as nice of a face as Cannonsburg. And the terrain park is slightly smaller. But they have more runs then what you find at Cannonsburg. Plus even beginners can take their express lift to the top if they are comfortable with it.
I didn't eat or look at dining options, but they appeared to have a ski shop, and a lodge. The lodge is nicer than Cannonsburg and I think for the Kalamazoo / Grand Rapids area this is better for beginners than Cannonsburg.
This hill is right by Timber Ridge and I would obviously go to Bittersweet before Timber Ridge.
Lift lines were small, but it was midweek during a dry spell of no fresh snow.
Just easy breezy groomers at Bittersweet....not much for people looking for advanced terrain in south west Michigan.
