The trails are finally groomed, since we have received an adequate amount for good coverage…some thin spots, ski those with caution. Several vehicles drove the road at the Museum Trailhead, so bear with us, we did our best to make it good, but still needs more work. About 5 miles groomed, will do more with more snow. To sign up for email reports of the current grooming status/report, email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 530 994-1050. Thank you for your patience!!!

CAMP LISA: Groomed, set track and skating lane
UPPER CAMPGROUND: Groomed, set track and skating lane

PLUMAS-EUREKA: Groomed, set track and skating lane…a little rough in some places because of tire ruts

THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT IN THIS!
A special thank you to all who have supported our volunteer grooming program in the past (no state funds are used for this program). If you haven’t this year, please consider donating to our efforts to keep them ongoing. And of course, gratitude to all the volunteers who donate their time to the trails.
Again, this year, our entire funding comes through donations to PESPA (Plumas Eureka State Park Association, P.O. Box 1148, Graeagle, CA 96103. There is also a donation slot on the Museum door at the Museum Trailhead). There are no trail fees, but we do wish that you consider donating to the program. Suggested donations are $5.00/day per person, $25.00/person for the season and only $40.00/family for the season.
Dogs are not permitted on the Jamison or Museum Trailhead trails, but a separate Dog Trail is groomed across from the Jamison Trailhead, for both skiers, snowshoers and their canine friends. We ask that you pick up after your pets. There is a pet station/bags at the Kiosk. Also, the porta potty is in place. Go out and enjoy winter skiing and snowshoeing!!!
AVALANCHE ADVISORY: The Central Sierra Nevada Mountain Avalanche Advisory is issued daily by the Sierra Avalanche Center (SAC), covering the Northern Sierra Nevada mountain range from Ebbett’s Pass (State Highway 4, Alpine County) to Yuba Pass (State Highway 49, Sierra County). It applies to back-country areas outside of developed ski areas only. For daily avalanche advisory information, go to the SAC website at www.sierraavalanchecenter.org, or phone (530) 587-3558.
We try to groom the trails after each snowfall and weekly to freshen up the trails. No walking is allowed on any of the trails. Dogs are not allowed on the main trails, but a separate dog trail is groomed and accessible across from the Jamison Trailhead (a beginner, an approx. one mile out and back trail).
This season we are actively recruiting new "Ski Patrol" members to assist with our winter program. Ski Patrol members work to dig out equipment, help with trail grooming and pass on important safety rules and history to the public to help them best enjoy one of California's premier winter destinations, Plumas Eureka State Park. Call the above number for more information on volunteering.
