First of all, ya’ll are gonna wanna pull out your hankerchief, click this here link and listen to Rob Armenti’s post hoedown ballad, “The Legend of the Lost Sierra Hoedown.”
The good ole’ days aren’t gone… They just live at the Johnsville Historic Ski Bowl.
Sept. 20-22, the AUTUMNAL EQUINOX, the HARVEST MOON and the LOST SIERRA HOEDOWN got all tangled up with all the good people in the triumphant land of campin’, hikin’ and bootstompin. We’ve been searching for the words all week… and we still can’t find the them. However, we will start with these two.
THANK YOU! Thank y’all so much!
For now we are going to let one big blanket thank you apply to the Lost Sierra Community. We are working on our short novel of gratitude, which is dedicated to the hundreds and hundreds of individuals who came together for this special event. We always aimed to form a miniature super community, and it sure did happen. From local legends to newcomers to the Johnsville Ski Bowl, thank you all so much for bringing your “A” game to the Lost Sierra Hoedown. And yes, we’re going to go ahead and give ourselves a pat on the back for selling over 300 tickets to a first time event, WAY off the beaten path, and raising over $6,000 toward re-opening the Johnsville Ski Bowl!
We hope we inspired ya’ll to fall in love with the Johnsville Historic Ski Bowl, and work toward re-opening and preserving this historic gem. If you came to the Lost Sierra Hoedown, welcome to the team. We are all in this together, and it ain’t over yet.
