Historians and racers of all kinds showed up Sunday, Jan. 20, to the ski hill above Johnsville to participate in and watch the first set of races in this year’s world-famous Longboard Revival Series.
The beautiful weather drove the masses out to the Plumas-Eureka Ski Bowl and instantly set a mood. No one was cold or miserable and high spirits abounded.
Though the racers amounted to 31 — nine women and 22 men — close to 350 people overall filled the historic ski site. Most January races bring an average of 150 people to the event.
