Lost Sierra Hoedown to support Johnsville Historic Ski Bowl re-opening

Special to the Sun

The Lost Sierra Hoedown is four days of simple outdoor living and live music at Johnsville Historic Ski Bowl at Plumas Eureka State Park, Sept. 18-21.

Celebrate the last weekend of summer and the autumnal equinox at the Lost Sierra Hoedown. Support the roots of skiing while living a low-impact, high fun lifestyle. The event is a fundraiser for the re-opening of Johnsville Historic Ski Bowl as a community driven non-profit operation.

The Johnsville Historic Ski Bowl is a 150-year-old ski area that stakes the claim to one of the first ski areas in North America and the birthplace of ski racing. The original Lodge still stands and is the center piece of The Lost Sierra Hoedown.

The ski bowl is surrounded by beautiful forest and hiking trails that lead up to Eureka Lake and Eureka Peak.

On site camping in a forest environment offers easy access to the stage and lodge.

The Ski Bowl has been closed for about 20 years.

Get on over to the Hoedown to benefit the ski bowl’s reopening as a community owned, nonprofit ski area.

Tickets are on sale now at lostsierrahoedown.com/tickets and the cost is $80 for a four-day pass, which includes camping and parking.
