Donate & Join the Village!

Situated at the site of the former Telemark Lodge lobby, the Lobby Plaza will be a gathering place not only for remembering the history of the Telemark Lodge and resort, but a new place to share memories to come. The area will provide a location to meet and gather, share a picnic meal and have a great time.

Plans for the site include:

  • An outside fireplace to pay tribute to the former lobby fireplace
  • Interpretive signage highlighting stories and history surrounding the Telemark property, ski trails, former Lodge and the people who were instrumental to the development of the area
  • Picnic/seating area
  • Gathering patio
  • Playground & fitness area
