The mountains between Johnsville and La Porte are home to the oldest recorded sport skiing in the western hemisphere, dating back to the 1850s. The Plumas Ski Club is a non-profit organization formed by skiers to keep skiing alive at Johnsville Historic Ski Bowl. Today, the Plumas Ski Club holds the Historic Longboard Revival Series three times per winter. 100% percent of proceeds from beers sales at the Lost Sierra Hoedown are donated to the Plumas Ski Club to help keep skiing alive at Johnsville Historic Ski Bowl.



Artfully crafted to match your adventure.

Stay in touch with the Hoedown.

The leaves are turning, snow is in the forecast and memories of this year's Lost Sierra Hoedown are fading. We're preparing to move on to ski season and that means its time to get a wrap on our lost and found pile and the last of our merchandise sales.

• Our lost and found pile is currently stored in the great outdoors, and rain is in the forecast for Thursday. We're taking the unclaimed remainders to the local thrift store Wednesday. Here's some general ideas of what's still there:
a camp stove; a sleeping bag, a tent, a complete duffle bag plus some smaller assorted non-valuables. Shoot us an email at info at lost sierra hoedown dot com if that sounds like something that may be yours before Wednesday!

• We've sold out about half of our leftover merchandise from this year's Hoedown but there's still a few great deals out there in some sizes and colors. We're shutting the store down at the end of October as going skiing is way more fun than going to the post office! Don't delay too long!
