LAC LA BELLE, Mich. (AP) - A northern Michigan resort known for extreme skiing is building a hostel to keep attracting a young crowd.

Mount Bohemia on the Keweenaw Peninsula is building a hostel with two rooms of 12 beds each. One room is for women and one is for men. The $45 daily rate will include breakfast and dinner.

Media relations director Stacy Kremer tells The Grand Rapids Press (https://bit.ly/2ccLa5t ) that millennials are looking for skiing with a “party vibe.”

The Keweenaw Peninsula in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula averages 273 inches of snow a year. Mount Bohemia doesn’t groom its runs, and the snow is compared to dry powder found out West.
