Changed my mind, going to Holly today unless someone tells me last minute that they want to do PK.

So, the girlfriend wants to hit up Bittersweet sometime this week. Cannonsburg and Pando are a bit of a hike for her (well, actually Bittersweet is too, but whatever). Does anybody know how the snow is at any of the aforementioned places?

As long as it doesn't get cold enough to freeze overnight, and as long as it doesn't dump a bunch of rain, conditions will be tolerably slow & slushy

I know the West side got some snow last weekend and earlier in the week but I imagine they also are experiencing some thaw right now so conditions are really going to be day-to-day. Pine Knob the other night was borderline "bad" but I heard it was awesome last night and Alpine Valley today was pretty good & soft slushy.

Pando is pretty limited, all rope tows and park-oriented if I'm not mistaken. If that's what you're looking for, good, but if not, you should probably do Bittersweet.

Awesome! It was quite a shock, driving from the UP to GR, and seeing that the lower peninsula has much more snow than most of the UP that I drove through. I had half a notion to stop at any of the ski areas along the I-75 corridor (I know I can pass Nub's Nob, Boyne, and Caberfae if I take the right exit off of 75), but realized I'd probably just piddle around the bunny hill at any of those spots. I do plan on hitting up some sled hills in the near future to master the basics, a'la Snowolf or Snow Professor's videos. Apparently I've been teaching myself wrong thus far

I kill the bunny hill!

As long as the temp stays above freezing, it should be fine.
