UNDISCOVERED BUT YET NOT TOO FAR OUT OF THE WAY
CAPTURE THE ROMANCE OF AN OLD RUSTIC LODGE
LONGBOARD PIONEERS, FIRST DOWNHILL RACING
Ski Gold Mountain consists of 350 acres with a vertical drop of 675 feet reachable presently by poma lifts. An additional 1,325 feet can be achieved by hiking above the current ski lift for 2,000 vertical feet. Ski Gold Mountain offers 20 ski runs of up to a mile in length, skiing for every ability level, panoramic vistas, an authentic rustic lodge, two poma lifts and the Lost Sierra Caf.
Ski Gold Mountain uses detachable bar style poma lifts which are French built and they operate much like modern high speed detachable quad chairlifts. Future plans include installation of a chair lift in the summer of 2000.
Presently no ski rentals are provided until next season when an extensive lodge expansion will be under way. So bring your own skis. A tubing lift will be place for this seasons enjoyment.
Prior to being acquired by the Gold Mountain Foundation in the summer of 1999, the ski area was previously named Plumas Eureka Ski Bowl and was operated by the non-profit Plumas Ski Club as a community ski area since the mid- 1950's.
