“We’re excited to welcome our guests and employees back to Spirit Mountain Casino,” said Stan Dillon, Spirit Mountain Casino’s General Manager. “We have used this closure as an opportunity to make improvements throughout the property.

Spirit Mountain Casino Continues to take care of their 1,100 Employees and families 

Grand Ronde Tribal Council and Spirit Mountain Gaming, Inc. were once again generous and extended another 80 hours of paid leave to their employees. The total now stands at 400 hours (two and a half full months) for each employee including; hourly wages, paid time off, health insurance, and tips. 

It is the sincere hope that this continued support of the staff during these challenging times will help alleviate some of the stress of our 1,100+ employees of the casino and their families. We are fortunate for the extraordinary generosity of the SMGI Board of Directors and Tribal Council.   

“While an opening date has yet to be determined; we continue to work closely with our Board of Directors and Grand Ronde Tribal Council to monitor the ever changing situation. We have also taken this time to deep clean and sanitize the entire property as well as make many improvements to our parking lots and the surrounding grounds.” Stan Dillon, General Manager.

Spirit Mountain Casino Remains Closed Until Further Notice While Keeping all Employees Paid with Full Benefits.

Grand Ronde Tribal Council and Spirit Mountain Gaming, Inc. were once again generous and extended another 80 hours of paid leave to their employees. The total now stands at 320 hours (two full months) for each employee including; hourly wages, paid time off, health insurance, and tips. While an opening date has yet to be established, it is the sincere hope that this continued support of the staff during these challenging times will help alleviate some of the stress of the 1,100+ employees of the casino and their families.

During the past six weeks, the Grand Ronde Tribal Council and Spirit Mountain Gaming Inc., have done what few companies throughout the entire country have been able to do. On March 18th, 2020, the temporary closure of the entire casino property began, sending almost all of the  1,100+ employees home for their safety. Since that day all employees have been paid including full benefits.

“We continue to work closely with our Board of Directors and Grand Ronde Tribal Council to monitor the ever changing situation and have begun the process of preparing a detailed reopening plan. This plan will include extensive sanitation best practices while ensuring the outstanding guest service we are known for is intact for all aspects of the guest experience in all venues once we are able to open our doors.” Stan Dillon, General Manager.
