Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2010 3C Longboard races and Snm,Jball gala on the horizon Shannon Morrow Sports Editor sports@p] The historic longboard revival series, a popular ski racing event held three times a year at Plumas Eureka Ski Bowl, is beginning to spread beyond Plumas County. This Sunday, Jan. 10, a group of about a dozen local longboard skiers and other members of the Plumas Ski Club will be featured at Squaw Valley USA as part of the resort's Olympic Heritage Celebration. Squaw Valley is holding a 10-day celebration commemo- rating the 50th,anniversary of hosting the Winter Olympics, and the historic longboard races is one of the featured attractions. Similarly, the Plumas Ski Club traveled to Mammoth Mountain last year to demon- strate longboard racing for the Ski History Congress. "The appeal of longboard racing is taking off all over the Sierras," said Plumas Ski Club President Ron Logan. "We're in demand." Resorts such as Northstar, Donner Ski Ranch and others have also expressed an inter- est in hosting the historic races. Organizing longboard races at different venues is considerably more work for the Plumas Ski Club, but members hope the increased exposure will further their ultimate goal of reopening Plumas Eureka Ski Bowl. This year's first longboard races at Plumas-Eureka Ski bowl will be Sunday, Jan. 17, with the races beginning at high noon. The second race is sched- uled for Sunday, Feb. 21, and the world championships are Sunday, March 21. Racers can register and take practice runs between 9:30 and 11:30 a.m., and histor- ical presentations will begin around 11 a.m. A prize draw- ing will also be conducted throughout the day. An awards ceremony will follow the races, in which the top racers will be recognized and special prizes will be awarded. For those who plan to race, you must be a member of the Plumas Ski Club, which costs $15 annually. The registration fee is $10 for racers who have their own longboard skis, and $20 for racers who need to use club skis. All racers should be in his- torical attire, and leather boots are required. Only authentic "dope" wax is allowed. Spectators are also encouraged to wear historic attire. The history of skiing in Plumas County dates back to the 1860s, when miners of the "Lost Sierra" u.sed skis or "snowshoes" to travel and recreate. Apparently the world's first ski lift was at Eureka Peak, where miners rode ore buck- ets up the mountain with skis in hand, ready for the long descent back to Johnsville. This distinguishes Plumas County as having the oldest recorded sport skiing in the Western Hemisphere. For more information on the longboard races, contact the Plumas County Visitors Bureau at (800) 326-2247 or the Eastern Plumas Chamber of Commerce at 836-6811.
