Well, I went to Mt. Holly 4 times this season.. I'd have to say it's a great place for beginners, there was a beginner run that was quite long, much longer than those i've seen at Caberfae and TreeTops. I've only been skiing 3 times before coming to Mt. Holly and I was able to cover the entire mountain numerous times in one day, so, it wasn't too challenging.. (unless of course you wanna hit some jumps, there were some HUGE jumps). They groomed the entire mountain in only 30 minutes, which was nice. The express lift was awesome! I don't know about you, but I like getting the most runs in as I can. I live in Mid-Michigan, so, i'd much rather go to Mt. Holly than drive 2.5+ hours to all the other mtns. Overall = it's a good mtn. for the price and location, and if you're a beginner, it's a great place to learn at.
