WARM SPRINGS, OR -- The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs Tribal Council took formal action, yesterday (Tue) to close the Kah-Nee-Ta Resort & Spa, including its lodge and golf course. The Board of Directors recommended the closure in early July, due to a lack of profitability. The Board presented a number of eco-tourism options for the Tribal Council to consider, however they failed to gain traction. Read more HERE.
A number of events will take place at the resort, this weekend, including a horse parade and Salmon Bake. Then, in the coming week, staff will finalize inventory of assets and turn them over to the Tribes. It will close September fifth.
The facility was built over the 1960s and 70s, but had struggled financially in recent years, after Indian Head Casino moved to Highway 26 in 2012.
