J *Some restrictions apply Pros give a lif-t As the days grow longer and the winter snows melt, the activity at the historic Johnsville Ski Bowl is pick- ing up speed. On Thursday, May 10, the newly hired lift engineer, Michael Stephen- son, along with Miro Poko- my, president of Mountain Pride Construction, Alfred Strolz, on-site electrician for Squaw Valley, and Ed Thompson, chairlift electri- cian, were on hand with members of the ski hill com- mittee to begin preliminary layout for the new chairlift. Stephenson is a tramway engineer who has overseen • the design and construction of more than 100 new installa- tions or major modifications of detachable and fixed grip .chairlifts and other custom tramways in the U.S., Canada and Japan. Pokorny is an ac- Complished lift contractor whose portfolio includes chairlift installations at Sug- arbowl; Northstar and Kirk- wood, as well as "Flightline" at San Diego Wild Animal Park -- the longest zipline in the continental United States. The day began early with a meeting of the engineers over coffee at the Chalet View Lodge, followed by an inspec- tion of the lift equipment in storage in Graeagle. Follow- ing the inspection, the group arrived at the ski bowl to be- gin the process of evaluating power options and potential lift locations. "I can't express how incredibly lucky we are to have this level of talent and experience involved in mov- ing this project forward," said Dan Gallagher, Eastern Plumas Recreation District board member. One of the main goals for the day was completing a profile survey from the top of the Ski hill to the bottom. The profile is the first step in selecting the tower loca- tions, the top unloading terminal and the bottom loading terminal locations. As straightforward as that sounds, the engineers ex- plained that there are raany important considerati0n to take into account in the ef'ffort to maximize the '= ski Johnsville" experience. One example is how to give the bowl's future visitors easier access and return from the "back trails" area. Another example is the possible l()ca- tion of a future terrain par-k. The experts relayed that they had a fun and produe -tive day on the mountain, wlaile moving the plans for reolDen- ing the historic Johnsxrille Bowl forward. Stephen son and Pokorny both expressml a sense of awe at the spectacu- lar view of the Mohawk Wal- ley and surrounding moun. tain ranges from the tOla of the ski hill. "The hill is steep- er than I first realized," said Stephenson. As soon as the ski boxvl's business and operations ]plan is finalized and officially" ap- proved, the EPRD Ski Johnsville Committee is plan- ning on organizing the first workday on the hill. "Several projects are on the agenda and community assistance is always welcome," said 'Tom Connelly, local engineer and longtime Johnsville advocate. One of the first projects in the works is the removal of scrap metal to a recycler in Reno and another is the refur- bishing and/or rebuilding of the historic warming hut. The EPRD board is hoping an individual or local group might enjoy taking on this challenge. The old warming hut dates back to the first days of the ski hill's opera- tion. To keep up-to-date on the ski bowl's progress and opportunities to volunteer for workdays or provide feed- back, those interested are encouraged to visit Yoga center to open Trails Within, a yoga and wellness center, is set to open in Graeagle the weekend of June 1 with a three-day Anusara Yoga Workshop taught by Dr. Paula Barros, of Chico. Inside the Trails With- in studio, visitors will find the bamboo floors and cheery colors of a recent remodel, but on the outside it's one of the classic red cabins in the middle of town that gives Graeagle its unique charac- ter. Trails Within will offer a regular schedule and a vari- ety of yoga and meditation classes, suitable for both the experienced student and the beginner. Starting in June, Trails Within will host a four- week beginner series on Wednesdays at 11 a.m. suit- able for those who are brand new to yoga and might be looking for an easy introduc. tion.

The studio is right in the middle of Graeagle at 7481 Highway 89 No. 111. Owner and yoga instructor Emily Williams said, "My hope is that Trails Within helps to build community, fosters health and wellness, and encourages a deeper con- nection to the beauty of the Sierra Nevada that sur- rounds us. My desire is to in- fuse yoga and wellness with outdoor activities, and to in- spire life-long health."
