Numerous items from the Telemark Lodge — like a disco ball, snow makers, a shuffleboard table and more — will soon be up for auction.
Starting later this spring, the items from the now-closed Wisconsin ski lodge will be up for grabs, according to online auction website Kubarek Auction and Estate Services.
The auction boasts items from the hotel, such as beds, side tables, desks and mirrors. Items from the commercial kitchen including dishware, industrial refrigerators, stainless steel shelves, blenders and cooling racks are also available.
The News Tribune last reported that a $47 million project to bring new life to the lodge stalled in 2018. Environmental and title concerns discovered during a due diligence period caused Telemark Development Partners LLC. to announce it would not move into the next phase of the purchase.
The lodge, located near Cable, Wis., was built for $6 million and opened in December 1972. It fell on hard times in the mid-1980s and has gone through numerous closings since.
North America's largest cross-country ski race, the American Birkebeiner, has its roots at the lodge. The "Birkie" leases Telemark's 713-acre land for its annual race.
This land includes over 18 miles of cross-country ski trails, as well as 15 miles of mountain bike and snowshoe trails, according to a news release from the American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation.
Telemark's land and trails are adjacent to the Birkie's starting line and the trailhead of the American Birkebeiner Trail.
