St. Eugene Resort season closing, October 12th, 2020
Cranbrook, B.C. – Covid-19 has had significant impacts on tourism businesses across BC and Canada. St. Eugene Golf Resort and Casino is no different and has made the decision to temporarily cease all of its operations, with the exception of the Casino of the Rockies, for the winter season on Thanksgiving Monday, Oct. 12. St. Eugene will re-open fully for the 2021 spring and summer in April as a seasonal resort with a year-round casino going forward.
“We expected to see fewer guests this winter because of COVID-19, and this decision will now allow for St. Eugene to focus and plan for what we do extremely well, and that is offering a unique destination of choice in a historic setting during the spring and summer in the Kootenays.” said Barry Zwueste, CEO.
Currently, the Casino of the Rockies, like all casinos in B.C., remains temporarily closed due to COVID-19. The Resort is looking forward to when the Casino can resume year-round operations, based on government approval.
This marks a significant change in the operation of St. Eugene, but is one that will see the resort thrive and prosper in the years ahead.
