There’s nothing quite like spending time in the forest during the winter. A snowshoe walk in the Lassen National Forest could be the perfect opportunity to take in the crisp, fresh air and enjoy the quiet beauty of the season.
Those who complain about a lack of interesting activities during snowy and rainy weather need complain no longer. Feather River College is offering a community education class that features indoor soccer.
The program is offered to both youths and adults and all skill levels are welcome. The class is taught by Juan Nunez, FRC’s head athletic trainer. Nunez brings his years of experience playing and coaching to the class.
The class is a seven-week program, currently entering its third week. Though two classes are finished, it is not too late to sign up.

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.

The Quincy High School ski team traveled to Sugar Bowl on Jan. 14 to switch up the runs and compete in some races.
The ski team’s league consists of six competing schools. Quincy is joined by Davis, Del Ono, Nevada Union, Colfax and Placer.
The four members of Quincy’s team didn’t perform as well as they hoped, but they still performed admirably. Daniel Haygood placed the highest on the team at 13th.
