Storm concerns force closure of Silver Star bike park

The popular facility will be off-limits for the remainder of Wednesday

Silver Star Mountain Resort has shut down its bike park for the remainder of Wednesday because of a possible storm.

The forecast calls for potential lightning and unsettled weather.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for the entire Okanagan, advising of locally heavy rain and thunderstorms.
