Kah-Nee-Ta Resort and Spa permanently closing

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- Kah-Nee-Ta Resort and Spa, a popular destination in Warm Springs, will completely shutdown on Sept. 5. 

The resort announced a WARN notice which was issued on Friday. The closure will leave 146 people without jobs. 

Kah-Nee-Ta said they continue to look for a "pathway to financing," but the outlook doesn't look like it'll prevent the closure. The WARN notice still lists the closure as "permanent."

"However, with no lease in place, the resort cannot continue operating below a self-sustaining level. This is necessary to ensure we protect any further risk to the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. The Tribal Council has asked that we continue to search for an option that can enable KNT to be self-sustaining.

"We hope you all understand the current condition and your continued support is critical during the next few months. Please feel free to discuss any concerns or questions you may have with your immediate Supervisor."

The plans for the property are not known at this time.
