If you look at the cumulative snowfall (NOAA graph), it really hasn't been too bad a year. Alpena and Traverse City are a little ahead of schedule, while other locations have a little less snow than normal...but not radically so.
Yes, the rain puts a damper on skiing (pun intended).
But think positive! The snow will come!*
*Unfortunatenly for me, the snow will probably come while I'm vacationing on Puerto Rico with my wife.
