Lost Sierra Hoedown, Johnsville Historic Ski Bowl

by admin posted September 18, 2013 category Event


This weekend, September 20-22, a unique gathering comes to Plumas County.  The Lost Sierra Hoedown, as it has been named, is a two day festival with high energy music that you hoedown 2can stomp your boots to, like folk, country, bluegrass and americana.  The event is aimed at benefiting and raising awareness for the re-opening of Johnsvile Historic Ski Bowl, where it will take place, in Plumas Eureka State Park.  The ski bowl, a historical and cultural treasure of the area, was one of the first hills to provide skiers with uphill transportation  via aerial ore carts used for mining.  Re-opening the Johnsville Ski Hill has been a goal of Plumas County for years, as it would provide a renewed life to the hill with a chair lift, providing many more generations of skiers to enjoy, following tradition.  Today, Johnsville Ski Hill remains alive in the winter with the annual Longboard Ski Races and in the summer is surrounded by hiking trails to beautiful lakes and mountain peaks.  All trails are open to enjoy during this exciting weekend, and the Lost Sierra Hoedown encourages it.  Acoustic music will take place at all hours of the day spread out along the trails as you hike or ride your way to your destination.  Amplified music will begin at 4pm.  ”There is nothing like a good ole fashion hoedown to bring people together. . .stomping their heels in the dirt, smiling, and locking their elbows to dosy doe.  The Hoedown allows people to slow down, disconnect their cyber lives, and to enjoy themselves.  They connect. . with themselves, the community, the place, and the cause.”  Perfectly stated by Rosie Hackett, Director of Outdoor Adventure Leadership.  For more information check out, www.LostSierraHoedown.com
