There are plenty of places around the world where you can enjoy spending time in the mountains and enjoy skiing during the day and visit spending casinos during night.

If you find yourself in Germany, perhaps you want to go visit one of the beautiful spas, you might want to drop by Baden-Baden. This is a spa town located quite close to France and Switzerland and as well as soaking in the hot springs, you might want to visit the casino. Its casino dates back to 1809. For holiday makers who love beautiful architecture, this is a real treat as it is reminiscent of a royal French palace and was once a place for only the most extravagant and high class people, but now it is open to everyone and many people just visit to simply watch. The rules are quite strict in that you will need your passport if you want to get in, you have to switch off your mobile phone, and men have to wear a jacket.

Lake Tahoe is another place where the joys of both indoor and outdoor activities can be found at the same time. There are plenty of options to ski, as at lake level, annual snowfall in South Lake Tahoe averages 125 inches. At alpine skiing elevations, the snowfall averages 300 to 500 inches each year. Skiers can enjoy California skiing and riding on one of the 97 trails in the midst of more than 4,800 total acres There are no less than six 24-hour casinos in the South Lake Tahoe area. Together, they have a total of 7,051 slot machines and 411 game tables. You can also visit a place like online casino UK if you just fancy a quite night in after a long day in the snow.
