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.

Happy Earth Day! From the beginning our goal for sustainability was to eliminate the single use plastic cups and water bottles from our event. Being in a magical place such as Eureka Peak we could not have random single use plastic cups or water bottles blowing in the wind. So we decided to invest in a sustainable approach by giving every participant their own Stainless Steel pint cup and requiring each individual to have their cup if they want to buy beer. We noticed at other events if given the choice many times people would choose the plastic instead of purchasing the reusable cup and those plastic cups always end up on the ground. So we eliminated the option and gave everyone a cup for free. We provide unlimited pure clean mountain water on site. No plastic cups or water bottles are distributed.
