People gather at the ski hill to cheer on longboard racers during last year’s Winter Snow Fest. This year’s festival will be held the weekend of Feb. 14 – 17.

Winter is here whether there is snow or not. That means it’s time for Eastern Plumas County to gear up for the fourth annual Winter Snow Fest the weekend of Feb. 14 – 17.

The yearly event provides the chance for people from all over to come and enjoy winter in the mountains and all the festivities Eastern Plumas’ snow has to offer.  

Snow Fest is a fundraiser for Plumas-Eureka State Park and the Johnsville Historic Ski Bowl. The Plumas-Eureka State Park Association, the Eastern Plumas Recreation District and the Graeagle-Plumas Alliance put it on.

According to Snow Fest liaison Jack Bridge, last year’s festival was a great success. It was the first year the groups hosted it at the ski hill and it was a perfect environment for the festival.

The sheriff could get another new deputy. And the district attorney could get additional money to fund the county’s growing Alternative Sentencing Program.

That’s what will happen if the Board of Supervisors approves recommendations passed last week by the county’s Community Corrections Partnership committee.

The odds of the supervisors approving the moves are good, because the money will be coming from the county’s share of Assembly Bill 109 (Criminal Justice Realignment) funding.

During its Wednesday, Jan. 15, meeting at the Plumas County courthouse in Quincy, the committee also proposed establishing a subcommittee to find a new site for the Day Reporting Center.
