New surface lift in the future for the Plumas Eureka Ski Bowl

Thanks to the Round Up Program at the Feather River Food Co-Op, the Plumas Ski Club will celebrate it’s 70th birthday with an additional $987.44 dedicated to a surface lift at the Plumas Eureka Ski Bowl. The Plumas Ski Club has provided winter recreational fun for many years at the historic site located just above Johnsville. Over several decades, the Club has hosted the Longboard Ski Revival Races and hopes to again see downhill skiing with the addition of a new TOWPRO surface lift. The Ski Club will continue to play a strong role in Plumas County’s local culture and showcase the richness of Plumas County living while honoring the legacy of downhill skiing.

The Plumas Ski Club is operated by volunteers, with no paid staff. The club has continued to upgrade the facilities with new electrical service and a new and enlarged deck, among other improvements. In addition to winter sports, the Club also envisions being able to hold events at the Ski Hill on a year-round basis. With the old ski lifts now obsolete, the next goal is to obtain and operate the simple surface lift for getting skiers and sledders up the hill.

New members are always welcome to join in the fun! To join the Plumas Ski Club, visit www.plumasskiclub.org or better yet, come on up to the hill this Sunday, Feb. 19 and again for the World Championship Race on March 19. Longboard Races are a great time for the whole family, and if you are planning on racing, registration opens at 10 a.m. and the race begins at 12:00 noon!
