UPDATE ON AUG 21:
Telemark continues to be temporarily closed due to the high fire hazard and the active Evacuation Order due to the McDougall Creek fire. We have put up a barrier in the parking lot and ask that people stay away from Telemark for all activities until the wildfire threat has subsided. Telemark is safe at this time and the situation remains stable. We have made some preparations to keep our valuable equipment and buildings safe out of an abundance of caution. Let’s hope for a change in the weather and that crews can get the fires under control soon! We are so thankful for all the emergency operations staff, local, municipal, provincial and federal assistance that keeps us safe.
Our hearts, minds and sympathies are with all those who have been affected by the fires.
