Weather plays a big role in our everyday life and Las Vegas warm weather is just one more asset associated with the 24-hour city. This week’s Reader Poll comes from a casino executive friend in charge of activities and would like to ask . . . Is it important to you, the Las Vegas visitor, if the pool and other outdoor activities at a casino are available during the winter months. When Las Vegas temperatures dip into the 30's for a few days, the locals think we are frozen however worldwide visitors living in much colder regions thinks it swim time. What is your opinion? We want to hear from you! (See other readers’ opinions below.)

I live in Vancouver and the mild winters that you have in Vegas as great for us to go outdoors in the afternoon sun.  i would like to be able to sit around the pool, not sure I would be swimming even if the water was heated.  Closing the pool area completely is a real disappointment.  Debbie G. Vancourver Canada

i never leave the casino, so i dont know what the weather is like and it does not interest me.  The hard core gambler / Jim K. 

I think it's swim time every time!   Ben   Las Vegas, NV.

I think, for all of us that come from outside of Nv. Las Vegas should have everything open and going all year long.I am comeing this month on the 20th. Even tho its winter, we would like to see and do everything the summer visters do. We may not go swimming but it should be there if we choose to do so. Our dollars we spend in the winter are just as
good as summer dollars.  Steve   Sedalia Mo.

Las Vegas prides itself on being a trend setter and leader in world entertainment. Vegas dares us all forget the rules and norms of day to day life when we are, What the heck - Keep the pools open. Most of them are heated, so why not?   Dave Mouldon  St. Louis, MO

I think that all of the hotels should have at least the hot tubs available during the winter months. Especially the ones charging Resort Fees! Or how about some indoor pools? We are coming at the end of February and the part I will miss the most is lounging by the pool. However the upside is that there will not be loud music blaring at the pool areas! LOL   Rose Marie Mezzapeso  Poland, OH

It would be much appreciated if t he pool areas were opened during the winter months in Las Vegas. Relaxing poolside with a glass of wine in the afternoon would be great.  Gail Gardner  Ballston Spa, NY

I definitely would like indoor pools or at least outdoor hottubs or heated pools open in the winter. You need some down time away from the machines and also something else for the kids to do besides video games.  Cathy Wise  St Catharines Ont  Canada

I'm a local now, but, used to visit from Wyoming, during NFR. In Dec, 50 degrees is not hot, but pretty warm, I was usually in shorts and T-shirt (not now, desert blood). I say, have a pool open for any guests visiting from far colder lands.... just another oddity of Vegas.  Rich Hofius  Henderson, NV

The pool should remain open. I am from NY and the cold harsh winter is brutal to our bodies mentally and physically. Being poolside, even if we don't swim lets us escape from the brutal NY winters even if it is just a mental break. Keep the pools open for the tourists! We need an escape from reality.  Edward Sweeney

ND and temp here today is -25 windchill, so I know cold!  I'm coming to Vegas next month and am looking forward to the "warmer" temperature. I think sitting outside in a hot tub in your "fridge" temps is pretty cool, but as far as actually taking a dip in the pool when it's 30 some degrees, "No Thanks". There are so many more things to do in Vegas that I don't think closing down the pools due to cooler weather should deter anyone from coming to Wonderful Las Vegas!  Barb Gange  Minot ND

 think it is important that the people who are visiting Las Vegas should have all of the amenities offered to them whether they choose to use them or not. I found that it is still nice to use the outdoor Hot Tubs in the coldest of weather. Alot of our traveling is based on the amenities of the hotel. Everyone should be able to experience the beauty of Las Vegas and it's surroundings. I can't wait to see my girlfriends face when she is surrounded by the pure energy of Las Vegas. So excited!  Carrie Mullins  St. Louis/MO
