Last Minute Letter About A Hoedown

Hello Everybody!

First of all, congratulations on purchasing a ticket to the second ever Lost Sierra Hoedown. The staff here at Lost Sierra would like to express tremendous gratitude for supporting our event and the Johnsville Historic Ski Bowl. We have been working hard to make sure this Hoedown is legendary and unforgettable. Here’s a couple last minute reminders to maximize your fun and minimize impact on the Plumas-Eureka State Park. Remember, it’s a Hoedown not a music festival, so prepare for something a little different.

Make sure to fill up those cars folks. We are going to have A LOT of people enjoying this Hoedown and minimal parking. Once the Ski Bowl parking is full, you can park alongside the road as long as you’re not crossing the white line. The better we all do at carpooling the easier parking will be!

Please drive safely on your way to Johnsville. If you have to drive at night, go slow and keep a sharp eye out for wildlife. Also, make sure you plan to arrive when our gates are open! See website for Gate Schedule and Cody Express Gear Shuttle schedule. When you finally arrive at the town of Johnsville, please drive extra slow! The speed limit is 25mph, but if you’re cool you’ll go 18. When you arrive at the gate, have your ID’s ready to go, that’s how you’ll get your ticket.

Campers! Make sure to read our camping guide at LostSierraHoedown.com. On-site camping is first come first serve, and be ready for some close neighbors! As always, we are all in this together. On-site camping is free, but if you are looking for more space and quiet time, Plumas-Eureka State Park campground is OPEN.

The weather is looking awesome, especially compared to last year! Still, we are in the mountains, and prepare for the worst. We’ve been seeing hot days and cold nights.

It’s up to you to manage your own trash, Pack it in Pack it out! We can handle compost and recycling. Beer and food vendors are on site! 100% of beer sales go to supporting the ski hill so bring some cash to fill up your pint cups with cold frosty brews from Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. and the Brewing Lair.

We look forward to see you all very soon! In the meantime, study up on LostSierraHoedown.com so you are prepared for maximum success!
