Casino set to reveal nature inspired redesign
St. Eugene Golf Resort and Casino in ?aqam has completed a significant renovation of their on-site Casino of the Rockies, which began on April 8.
The refreshed Casino of the Rockies will launch with a grand opening event on July 19 at 7 p.m. Sure to be a highlight of the evening are performances by acclaimed Neil Young and Alan Jackson tribute bands, Live Rust and Aaron Halliday.
“Our casino has been completely re-imagined with a design inspired by nature,” said Barry Zwueste, CEO of St. Eugene Golf Resort and Casino. “It is now brighter and livelier with a bold nature-based design concept that celebrates the Ktunaxa connection to the earth and highlights native elements in their traditional territories. We look forward to welcoming our community and partners to celebrate the grand opening of the Casino of the Rockies alongside us on Friday, July 19.”
While the renovation was significant, the casino was able to maintain operations with brief section closures while prefabricated installations were fitted.
The completely revamped gaming floor now showcases design elements inspired by nature including ambient lighting that reflects day and nighttime skies.
A new, full-service restaurant concept called Kiʔsuʔk k̓ikiⱡ (pronounced key-sook-kick-ikch) which is Ktunaxa for “good food,” will add to the resort’s dining options.
“We are thrilled to launch a completely refreshed and updated Casino of the Rockies to our community and to our summer guests to complement world-class golf, hotel, RV and spa facilities,” said Zwueste. “We look forward to revealing the transformation of the casino to our guests and community members.”
