EPRD obtained a 10-year op- erating agreement with the state park in 2011. After strong community fundrais- ing, the district was also able to obtain a ski lift and two rope tows h'om Squaw Valley. According to EPRD board member Dan Gallagher, the next step for the project is to raise enough funds to install the chairlift and the two sur- face lifts. EPRD board member Jack Bridge said it will cost around $300,000 to install the chair lift alone, and without the support of the community, the installation will be a slow process• There have been, and will be, many fundraisers for the Johnsville Ski ttill project, in- cluding concerts at Nakoma Golf Resort, the 20th annual SnowBall and the upcoming third annual Winter Fest lo- cated for the first time at the ski hill. "There is a lot of stuff we want to do," said Gallagher, "but right now Johnsville is front and center•" It's a slippery slope, but be- cause of the efforts from many community members and businesses, there is an end in sight for the Johnsville Historic Ski Bowl project• The Johnsville Ski B0wl has been a historical land- mark for the county since the 1860s. According to oral history, the mining ore buckets that went up GOld Mountain acted as possibly the first ski lift in the world. The mountains in the area also became one of the first places in the Western Hemisphere for sport skiing such as longboarding -- a tra- dition the community still cel- ebrates. Since the 1950s the hill was under the operation of the Plumas Ski Club, a private nonprofit organization• But the project encountered some thin ice because Plumas-Eure- ka State Park, within which the ski hill is situated, pre- ferred to work with a public entity• Recognizing the need to continue the project, the East- ern Plumas Recreation Dis- Gallagher it will have begin- ning to intermediate runs, and when it is open EPRI) will reach out to schools to in- stall ski programs and youth events. Gallagher also said the overall goal is to promote eco- nomic growth in the commu- nity by creating a destination ski area for tourists and fami- lies to enjoy• This will give the community an opportuni- ty to wake up during the win- ter, and not have to shut down when the snow falls• Bridge stated that it is go- ing to have to be a very ag- gressive marketing promo- tion because most all of the funds are going to need to be donated by the community. Both Gallagher and Bridge predict that the hill will be opening next winter, t]owev- er, the amount of funds the project receives until then will determine how many of the three lifts will be opera- ble.
