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.
I'm surprised you've never been there. I guess you guys have some good places there by Detroit though to.
