The skiing at Mount Holly in Holly, Michigan, a southeast portion of the state is the closest to Toledo that is not a reformed garbage hill turned ski slope. My wife and I took the 2 hour drive and enjoyed the time together, and compared to other smaller hills, it is good. But I graded overall as a ski area, and it pales to most.

Some of the positives include the smaller crowds than most places. For a small facility, it was well covered in snow and man made snow as well. There are seven chair lifts, and 5 tow ropes for little ones, but two of them are magic carpet lifts--slower moving sidewalk type platforms. There is a small terrain park as well.

Food selection was poor and overpriced. The lift tickets were 30 dollars for the day each, and was only really worth the price on Tuesday, when the tickets were BOGO. The runs were very quick and without challenge for the moderately experienced skier. The area with moguls labeled had none, and the black diamonds were a little bit overrated, they were blue squares at most.

Not a bad small place, but I would not drive further than 3 hours to get to it...because if you live that far away from it, there are better options in the area.
