Casino's in Colorado Ski Resorts

Hello ladies and gentlemen. Planning to do a ski trip to Colorado this late December with the wife. We are looking to book very soon and I have a general question........

We normally stay in Lake Tahoe which is fun because we can ski/snowboard all day and hit the casino at night (we normally stay at Harvey's) Was wondering if there are any mountains in Colorado that have casino/hotels at the bottom or base of them similar to what Lake Tahoe offers?

Nope. The closest casinos to the ski resorts are in Blackhawk and Central City. Which really isn't very far from the ski resorts. Probably 45 minutes from Breck.

In the winter it's a bit more than 45 minutes you're looking at about an hour 15 to hour and a half.

This is probably true. Also they are doing tunnel construction which I am not sure if that will bleed into the winter, but it probably will. That will factor into the time it would take to get there.

Casinos in general tend to attract some low lifes, but my god, Blackhawk/Central City takes that to a whole new level. I've lived here in CO for 8 years now and actually been to those casinos once. That's all it took. I can't imagine wasting any time of a vacation to CO on going there. I think they check you at the door to ensure that you're either 80+ or a complete degenerate.
