Default Thunder Mountain in Kelowna is it closing down?

Heard a few rumors the track might close down do to think insurance reasons do to accident that happened there think this year.
Anyone have any inside information. Be real bummer as just moved here and was really pleased to have a track so close to city and if it goes down that will think leave Mission BC as next closest track and think its like 4 hours from Kelowna?
