Pioneer Skiing in California


This booklet proudly presents a chronology of pioneer skiing in the Sierra Nevada and covers the early development by miners of downhill skiing in America during the 1850s and 1860s. It also features many of the exploits of Snowshoe Thompson and other early skiers. Originally produced as the Nut Tree's contribution to the 1960 Olympics (held in the Sierra Nevada) and the centennial of sport skiing in America, this updated version not only reprints Robert Power's original text, but adds many historic photographs of longboard skiers in Plumas County and a chapter by local, Norberta Schmidt, on the role of Johnsville in pioneer skiing. A valuable and interesting source for information on the true birthplace of downhill ski racing - Plumas County, California! Illustrated with historic B/W photographs.
