7 springs is a pretty good place. May not have the best snow but top rated park on the east coast, number 4 pipe in the nation, and the base lodge (if your over 21) is rather awesome. They have like 4 bars inside it's a good time.
Heading to snowshoe with some friends for the first time black Friday for 2 days. That should be a good weekend since it's there opening weekend.
I'll deff check it out bc i haven't been there. Snowshoe is real nice but i don't think they will have that much snow the first week. january is really when they have their full pack.
and i'll check out the mich thread, thanks!
