Mt. La Crosse, WI, Aug. 11--Midwest skiers will encounter a changing landscape this winter. At least one new ski area will open, and several others have changed hands.

With Michigan's Mt. Bohemia project in dispute, only one new ski area will open for certain this winter. Steeplechase Ski Area, 13 miles north of Rochester, Minnesota, will be running with two triple and two double chair lifts and full amenities.

Several other resorts will have new operators. Mt. La Crosse in Wisconsin has been sold to locals who negotiated a 40-year lease on the property. Along with winter improvements, the ski area will now offer mountain biking and other activities in the summer.

Rib Mountain, WI, will be operated by Charles Skinner, Jr. of Lutsen Mountains, MN. The area has been renamed Granite Peak at Rib Mountain State Park.

Mt. Frontenac, MN, has been sold to the Prairie Island Indian Community who also run the Treasure Island Casino a few miles from Mt. Frontenac.

Pine Mountain, MI closed last season and will reopen under the new ownership of three local businessmen. In addition to sprucing up the grounds, the new owners intend to refurbish the resort's 39-room hotel.
