The Eastern Plumas Recreation District (EPRD) is actively moving forward with the Johnsville Historic Ski Bowl project. This project will revitalize our economy by providing a destination ski area for locals, tourists and those seeking a unique, family-oriented winter recreation experience. The EPRD has taken significant steps forward over the past six months including securing a long-term Operating Agreement with State Parks, securing private funds to purchase the “Main-Line” chairlift from Squaw Valley Ski Corp. EPRD has also made tremendous progress on developing a business plan and an organizational structure for planning, construction and operation of the ski hill.
The EPRD needs your help. Please consider making a pledge of a specific donation amount by contacting any EPRD Board member at 530-412-1455 any amount is appreciated. The EPRD must raise $35,000 before August 2, 2011, to fund the engineering costs for installation of the chair lift. When we exceed this amount, funds will go towards upgrading the bathrooms, water system and the new sledding hill. Please note that 100% of the funds raised will go towards construction of the ski hill facilities and getting this historic destination open to the public once again.
Please help us reach our goals with your pledge of a tax deductible donation. Thank you for taking the time to consider donating to this important community project. It is only through your generosity that Johnsville Ski Hill will open once again to benefit our entire community by providing a year around recreation venue for our residents and visitors while enhancing economic development in the area and improving the quality of our lives here in Plumas County.
