Lost Sierra Hoedown

Lost Sierra Hoedown is a fun little (only 500 tickets sold) Hoedown music campout in the Sierra Nevadas . It takes place in a small town called Johnsville, Ca. at the old Johnsville historic ski area.

This from the founders:

Our mission is to re-invent the music festival, inspire land stewardship through outdoor recreation, and support Johnsville Historic Ski Bowl.

The Lost Sierra Hoedown is a weekend of simple outdoor living, and human-produced music you can dance to: folk, country, bluegrass, and Americana. This hoedown will raise funds and awareness for the re-opening of Johnsville Historic Ski Bowl.
Below is Z who is the founder of the Hoedown and who grew up in the area. Thank you Z for such a fun time !!

Hoedown is a campout event filled with foot stomping , fun loving music and lots of super nice people who will be your friends by the end of the weekend. These are Hoedown photos of past and present hoedowns. I have gone to 5 out of 6 of the hoedowns. I really enjoy the smallness of it, the music, the venue and the whole brotherly vibe!

The Johnsville historic ski bowl is also the home of the Plumas ski club. These folk ski on the old time longboards. I have yet to get out there to watch a race but hope to in the following season.

     The Plumas Ski Club’s purpose is to promote community skiing activities; through historical re-enactments of 1860’s era ski racing in the Lost Sierra. Our primary mission is to raise funds, by sponsoring community events, for the continued maintenance and eventual re-opening of the Johnsvile Historic Ski Bowl.
We have a volunteer board of directors and we enthusiastically welcome all volunteers and new energy to the club! This community based ski club has developed, maintained, and operated the historic ski bowl since the 1950’s.
We are a valid 501c3 and donations are always welcome. Please contact us if you wish to donate.

     Johnsvile Historic Ski Bowl is located just above Johnsville CA. Map here

Lots of nice hiking to do in this area as well. So, if one is tired of the nonstop music you can hit a trail to one of several lakes. Below are Rock and Jamison lakes.
