Welcome to Plumas County!

The snowy season has officially arrived, but not enough snow! C'mon, darn it, more snow! The forests and mountaintops will be covered in white, bringing tranquil beauty to the Northern Sierra. Whether you’re a snow sports enthusiast or simply seeking respite, you’ll find Plumas County a quiet alternative to overcrowded ski resorts.

Break trail in pristine woods on cross-country skis or snowshoes, or grab a sled for a thrilling ride down a powdery slope. Explore miles of groomed or un-groomed snowmobile routes; first-timers can try a guided snowmobile or ATV tour.

Snow brings on some "cool" winter events such as Winter Snow Fest, Historic Longboard Ski races, sled-dog races and more. After a perfect winter’s day, relax in the warmth of a cozy cabin and indulge in gourmet mountain cuisine.

Getting here is easy via well-maintained roadways. Just be sure to check the forecast and road conditions before heading out.
