I don't know if all of these were said:

Timberlee Hills - closed 1972
Walden Hills - closed 1974
Holiday - closed 2001 (reopened a few years later by the locals as ski area for underprivileged kids)
Sugar Loaf - closed 2001
ski jump in Munising - closed in the 60's
Mt. Mancelona - ? looking for info

I'd love to go check them all out

Two more lost Michigan ski areas:
Lansing Ski Club - this was a private ski club located between East Lansing and Haslett. It is now a housing development. I think it was where Longview Dr. and Skyline Ct. are now. Adjacent to Walnut Hills Country Club.

Kandahar Ski Club - in TyroneTownship, Mi, southwest of Fenton. It was two miles East of US23, on the north side of Foley Road. Sad that these low key places are gone.
