Historic Longboard Races are Here

by staff posted January 13, 2013 category Event, Winter

The Historic Longboard Races are here!!!  On January 20th, get ready to witness a tradition on the Plumas Eureka Ski Bowl in Johnsville, as skiers race down the hill on longboards, to the finish line.  Participants dress in miner fashion to pay tribute to the history of the mountain’s mines, while strapping on 12-14 foot long skis, in an attempt to be the fastest.  Skill and speed determine the winner, as spectators cheer them on as part of the tradition that echoes into the mountain.  Join us in this historic event and be part of the effort to raise funds to restore the Johnsville Ski Hill, which aims to install a ski lift and establish tubing for winter recreation to enjoy in plumas county.  May the Longboards be with you!!  See you at the races!!
