A new Colorado casino opened its doors in Cripple Creek on Dec. 27.
Full House Resorts announced the opening details for its newest gaming destination, Chamonix Casino Hotel. According to the company’s press release, the new casino features:

A temporary restaurant and buffet are open, but the hotel will include more amenities in the future.

The new Colorado casino is about 45 miles from Colorado Springs and 80 miles from Denver’s southern suburbs. Chamonix is connected to Bronco Billy’s Casino, which is also owned by Full House Resorts.
Additional amenities at Chamonix Casino to open by March 2024
Upon welcoming the public to its casino floor, Chamonix opened its garage and surface parking. Within a week, the owners expect to open the balance of its guestrooms, while some rooms are already available for booking.
In roughly one month, Chamonix plans to open its high-end 980 Prime restaurant, featuring the cuisine and supervision of Las Vegas celebrity chef Barry Dakake.
Shortly after that, Chamonix will unveil Ore and Alloy, its freestanding jewelry and luxury retail store, and its luxurious Chamonix Spa, which features:
- A rooftop pool and deck
- Winter garden
- Large workout room with modern exercise equipment
- Eight massage rooms
- An assortment of saunas
- Steam rooms
The spa also offers a full-service salon with hairdressers, barbers, and manicure and pedicure capabilities. In the spring, the adjoining Bronco Billy’s Casino will introduce its new Italian restaurant, Firenze.
Vegas experience in a Colorado mountain setting
According to a Full House Resorts’ press release:
“Chamonix is named after the “Queen of Alpine” resorts in France, located at the foot of Mont Blanc and site of the first Winter Olympics in 1924. The name is particularly appropriate, as Colorado Springs is home to the US Olympic Committee and Training Center.”
Chamonix Casino Hotel in Colorado is an addition to the region’s Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond resorts. Baxter Lee, general manager of Chamonix Casino Hotel, said:
“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 Dec. 27 and to welcome our friends from Colorado and beyond.”
