This storm should help all southeastern Michigan ski areas.

So what did you actually get up your way? They were calling for 4"-8" here in T-Town and it looks like about 3" with some rain starting to mix in. You aren't getting any of that are you?

Thinking about heading up to Holly or Alpine this weekend. My dad got a new pair of skis he wants to get on a few times before we head out west.

No Rain, very little sleet in my area (I am about 30miles south of Alpine)

Friend skiing at Holly this morning said about 5" new and still snowing. Looks like maybe another 1-3 today. Should be good skiing all weekend, before Mondays rains.
