Central Oregon resort Kah-Nee-Tah will re-open

Updated: February 1, 2023

When Kah-Nee-Tah Resort in Warm Springs, Ore. was closed back in 2018, it sent shock waves through the resort and golf world. The Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Reservation of Oregon seemed to have a winner with its resort and golf course. But business slowed and the resort closed in 2018.

But now there is new life for Kah-Nee-Tah Resort. A partnership between The Confederated Tribes and the owner of Mount Hood Ski Bowl has plans to re-open the iconic resort in 2023.

Mount Hood Ski Bowl owner Kirk Hanna says the effort to re-open the resort will provide much-needed employment in the area. When the resort shut its doors in 2018 a total of 140 employees lost their jobs.

According to the news release, the re-opening of the resort means that 50 full-time and 8- part-time positions will be available.

The first phase is to reopen the Kah-Nee-Tah Village. There was no indication about the golf course re-opening, but the golf course was an important part of the resort. Stay tuned for that.
