I personally have not been yet, but I have been itching to get there. They get around 270-300 inches of snow a year. They have 2 lifts, which one will be broken until Jan 7th or so. No groomed trails, no restaurants or anything. Its a pretty local place and it sounds like it is pretty rad. Everything is basically "backcountry" for Michigan's sake. You can stay in the cabins or yurts for pretty damn cheap.
If you have the chance to go, do it. I would go if it weren't 10 hours from my place.
Because I'm from the suburbs, not Compton. And you look like an idiot when you are all thugged out in the parking lot waiting for Mom to pick you up in her Lexus crossover.
