People are really friendly. Tickets don't cost that much.
Not enough vertical. Skiing not worth the drive.

The lift operators and everyone working in the lodge are super friendly here. Probably more so then anywhere else around Michigan I've been lately. The lodge is pretty nice inside and the food is actually reasonably priced. A burger, fries and drink came in under $10 for lunch. The actual skiing. This mountain is short. According to ski tracks at the end of the day only 368 feet which puts it about 20 feet taller then Pine Knob. There are several runs with some variety but nothing to set the place apart. The chair lifts are all slow so you feel like you are spending a lot of time just sitting on a chair if your at all used to skiing anywhere with high speed chairs. It is a 4 hour drive to get here from the Detroit area. There really is nothing here to justify the drive or hotel stay to ski this place. If you happen to live close by it's probably an okay occasional place. If you are coming more then an hour or 2 drive it feels like you drove a long way to ski something really no better then Pine Knob or Mt Holly.
