So while visiting this new-ish Kelowna attraction with friends from Germany, we met the owner of Kelowna mountain and got some inside intel. The main lodge was built in an incredible 30 days... which explains many of the deficiencies like only one working sink in a public bathroom... the rest of the sinks have not been installed yet. Makes me wonder if the building has passed final inspection... but I digress.
The suspension bridges are the main attraction along with the views. People should come here just for that. Stunning views and impressively long bridges. Other than that, there isn't much here. The vineyards are just a couple of measly grape plants, the gift shop is quite bare, there is no food service, the massive Italianate building is empty save for the cheap, Korean made grand piano, the humongous sundial is deteriorating, and the chair lifts are non-functional and only half built... apparently, after starting to build the ski resort the owner realized that this area never receives enough snow (you'd think he would have done a feasibility study prior to construction), so now he is thinking of turning one of the lifts into a gondola. Plus, the paved driveway is full of potholes, not to mention the gravel road one must travel on just to get to the bottom of resort drive.
Apparently, the owner has a 50 year plan for this place. It might take that long to get it to a truly presentable condition. Still, an interesting visit. 4 stars.
