I completely agree. I am from Michigan as well (Ann Arbor) and it has
been my experience that most of the skiers in the area are very generous
when it comes to taking on a new skiing partner. Just hook up with one of
the clubs, like the Whitmore Lake or something - you'll meet somebody
there who'll let you ski with them all you want if you bring some gas
along with you to help pay for the gas you use. If you are interested and
need the phone number of somebody from the whitmore lake club, let me know
and I'll find it out for you. (I'm no longer in the club because I've
turned my attention to barefooting (for which Whitmore does not a good
site provide). Have a good summer, you're moving into a wonderful place
to ski (southeastern michigan has lakes _everywhere_).
