NORTH OKANAGAN - Things have come to a rocky end for a North Okanagan resort.

The owners of Pinaus Lake Resort, between Falkland and Westwold, announced on their Facebook page the resort is closing indefinitely due to land slide activity. Arvid and Audrey Hoglund said ongoing testing came back “too dangerous for the approval of the government to continue to operate.”

“We will not be opening this season. We are shocked and saddened by this news and are doing everything we can to get organized including contacting our permanent year round campers to coordinate removing their items from the resort,” the Hoglunds said.

No one is permitted to access the resort until further notice due to the danger of the slide and any access will be considered trespassing due to the instability of the land above the resort, the Hoglunds said.

To access Pinaus Lake, people are advised to use the Forestry Service Site.

“We have had many happy years sharing this resort with you, getting to know you and appreciate all the support over the years. We will update as we move along in this process.”
