The Chamonix Casino Hotel will be the name of Full House Resorts’ Cripple Creek project, which comes as the casino operator also announces plans to buy Carr Manor and renovate its Silver Slipper Casino and Hotel.
Chamonix, which will be constructed next to the company’s current Bronco Billy’s Casino, will have around 300 four-star guest rooms and VIP suites, as well as a casino gaming centre, meeting and event facility, rooftop pool, spa, and a self-parking garage that will handle more than 300 cars.
The estimated investment to complete Chamonix is projected to be around $180 million, which the firm recently funded with new senior secured bonds. The Chamonix Casino Hotel is expected to open in the fourth quarter of 2022.
Full House also decided to purchase several land plots and the adjacent Carr Manor, a bed-and-breakfast inn with 15 rooms situated a block and a half away from Bronco Billy’s, to alleviate parking and hotel problems during the renovation of Chamonix.
The property and real estate sales, which are subject to due diligence and customary terms, are scheduled to close in early April 2021 for a total of $3.4 million.
Luxury of the French Alps to the Rockies
Daniel Lee, president and CEO of Full House Resorts said: “Chamonix will bring the luxury of the French Alps to the Rockies, combining ‘European elegance with Colorado comfort.
“Our new property takes its name from Chamonix-Mont Blanc, the world-famous French alpine resort and site of the first Winter Olympics in 1924. Some five million people visit Chamonix in France each year.
“The Chamonix Casino Hotel in Cripple Creek will offer 300 new guest rooms and VIP suites, nearly doubling the town’s hotel capacity.
“At our Chamonix, guests can experience Pikes Peak and the surrounding area’s natural beauty by hiking, mountain biking, rock-climbing, fishing, fossil-hunting, and exploring local gold-mining operations and historic railways.”
