The Plumas Ski Club's purpose is to promote community skiing activities through historical re-enactments of 1860's era ski racing in the Lost Sierra. Our primary mission is to raise funds, by sponsoring community events, for the continued maintenance and eventual re-opening of the Johnsville Historic Ski Bowl.

We have a volunteer board of directors and we enthusiastically welcome all volunteers and new energy to the club! This community based ski club has developed, maintained, and operated the historic ski bowl since the 1950's.

We are a valid 501c3 and donations are always welcome. Please contact us if you wish to donate.
