New owners of Telemark Lodge willing to work with community leaders

Cable, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- After a meeting with community leaders, the new owners of the Telemark Lodge in Cable, WI say they are willing to work with the town to accommodate the public.

The trails that are located on the lodge's grounds will continue to be available for various events that have historically taken place there.

The new owner is willing to work with town leaders and businesses to open the trails to the public and allow the American Birkebeiner to host their annual ski race on the lodge's grounds.

The lodge itself will be prepared for winter and maintained, however, reopening will not be in the near future.

"The new owners have indicated that, at least for the short term, all of those events are going to continue as they normally do and they're working with another group to possibly take over running the lodge," says James Bolen, Executive Director of the Cable Area of Commerce. "Although, that will likely not take place anytime soon."

The trail system and lodge on the recently purchased property are a major draw for tourists and brings a significant economic impact to the area.
