Full House Resorts announces opening information for its new gaming destination Chamonix.

Chamonix Casino Hotel’s new casino will open today (December 27). The resort offers a 300-guestroom hotel, with the property located in Cripple Creek, approximately 45 miles from Colorado Springs and 80 miles from Denver.

The new destination features slot machines and a table games area, which will be available immediately. Within one month, the rest of the resort is set to fully open, including restaurant 980 Prime, conceptualized by Las Vegas celebrity chef Barry Dakake.

The resort will also offer a spa and luxury retail store, featuring a rooftop pool, workout area and full-service salon.

The name of the hotel is a nod to the ‘Queen of Alpine’ resorts in France, the site of the first Winter Olympics in 1924, due to Colorado’s connection to the Olympics as home to the US Olympic Committee and Training Center.

The new resort is located adjacent to Full House Resorts’ existing Bronco Billy's Casino, which will introduce its new Italian restaurant, Firenze, in Spring 2024.

Baxter Lee, General Manager of Chamonix Casino Hotel, commented on the opening of its new destination: “Chamonix is a special place, unlike any other casino hotel in the state. It offers a high-end, Las Vegas experience in our beautiful Colorado mountain setting.

“We are overjoyed to open Chamonix’s doors on December 27 and to welcome our friends from Colorado and beyond.”

Full House Resorts is currently still awaiting approval for expansion of its Waukegan Casino development in Illinois.
