Judge rules famous lodge abandoned

CABLE, Wis. (AP) – A judge has ruled the famous Telemark Lodge in northwestern Wisconsin has been abandoned and that foreclosure should be sped up.

Telemark closed in March. Since then, the foreclosure has been going through civil court. At a hearing two weeks ago, testimony revealed Telemark hasn’t had electricity or water since March.

Mortgage holder Dick Short said the abandonment ruling means they can clear the title of lien holders and have a better chance to sell it.

Short tells Wisconsin Public Radio the goal is to “keep Telemark alive.”

The lodge was built in 1972 and is the starting point for the American Birkebeiner.

Regardless if Telemark is sold, Short and the American Birkebeiner have an agreement to use the 900 acres of property and trails for next February’s race.
