Showdown is within an hour I believe.
It's not a great mountain or anything, but it'll offer more than anything in MI. I think it has like 1600 to 1400 Vert feet. But you're still pretty close to some really nice resorts. I'd call it good move if you can handle living in a cold place that doesn't offer the city life you've become accustomed to.
(Assuming you don't live in the backwoods of MI)
Good Luck !
