I've also been to Mount Holly.
The best place I've been to in MI is Bittersweet. It's a completely natural hill, bigger than Knob and Holly, and gets a crap load of lake effect snow from Lake Michigan. That place is awesome, bar far my favorite local place to snowboard at the weekends! You should go there some time!
The west side of the state, around Bittersweet gets a ton of lake effect, lucky bastards. You'll be happy to know that Boyne benefits from the lake effect snow too.
Usually I head up north for the weekends and the small places like PK or Holly on weekdays but I'll have to check out Bittersweet, it's about 90 mins from me.
