The weather has been keeping everyone on the edge of their seats, but as of now the annual World Championship Longboard Races are on for this Sunday, January 15 at the historic Johnsville Ski Bowl.
The races start at noon sharp; participating racers need to register between 10 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. Parking is limited so attendees are asked to carpool if possible. There may be a parking shuttle operating from the Plumas Eureka State Park museum parking lot, but it will be weather dependent. The shuttle is 2WD so it will not be operating if it’s snowing.
There will be beer and food for sale, along with new merchandise, so all are encouraged to bring cash.
All are welcome to spectate and compete. For those who would like to compete, the dress code is 1860’s style attire and leather boots. There will be a limited amount of club skis available for rent. The fee is $40 cash ($20 club membership and a $20 entry fee) to compete if you have your own skis; $60 if you’re renting.
