Went up to chute lake to find the mud pits and came across this. There looks like an old ski lift was installed (no pics) and this weird resovior park at the very top. Never did find any mud :( Was I close to the pits??

easiest way to find the mud pits is to drive up gerrard foresry road till you hit the kvr then turn right and follow it till you see the mud pit on the right hand side. it will be about 5 kms from the chute lake lodge so if you hit the lodge you missed it.

Not an old ski lift, a new one. And the other thing is just a resevoir.

That's the word on the street. I've dealt with them several times in the past though, so I know them a little. I don't think they've "run out" of money, probably just put the project on hold because maybe they're starting to realize what an absolutely insane idea that is to try and put a ski hill right in Kelowna.....[16]

Its actually really cool. They used burnt logs from okanagan wildfire for the entire theme of the park. What better use could you think of for burnt wood?? In the pictures below, there are something like 8 wooden skilift bench swing chairs and a patio just below them.
