That chill in the air and the snow on the ground, hills and slopes indicate that Minnesota's high school Alpine and Nordic skiers are a little more than three months from crowning the initial winter state champions. Change awaits some who qualify for state. The Alpine state meet will take on a World Cup look this year, with the Minnesota State High School League using what is known as the "bibbo" system to determine the order of the skiers. The fastest qualifiers will go last, heightening the drama for fans lining the course at Giants Ridge in Biwabik.
