High Altitude Information
You may notice some strange things happening to you when at a higher elevation. Some people experience minimal symptoms of altitude sickness such as headaches, strange dreams, trouble sleeping, and shortness of breath. Try combating these symptoms by drinking a lot of water (8 or more cups a day), taking over the counter medication for headache (please consult your doctor), and avoiding caffeine and/or alcohol. Oxygen will help many of these and other symptoms and enable you to enjoy your trip. You can purchase oxygen from various companies or local stores, or you can visit HighCountryHealth.com to find more information on how they can assist you with getting oxygen.

How to Prepare for Your Mountain Vacation
Enjoy every minute of your vacation by following these tips for preparation.
- Take a lesson. Like everything else, you'll improve the most when you receive some guidance. The best way to become good at downhill skiing or snowboarding is to take a lesson from a qualified instructor. You'll safely learn more in 2 hours than you will in 2 weeks on your own.
- Obtain proper equipment. Be sure to have your ski or snowboard binding adjusted correctly. WEAR a helmet! Accidents happen and this is the best way to protect yourself from a brain injury. You can rent quality ski or snowboard equipment at one of our local trusted shops. www.PioneerSports.com and www.Carverskishop.com
- Dress in layers. Layering allows you to accommodate your body's constantly changing temperature. Do not wear cotton as a base layer, wear something that dries quickly, absorbs sweat, and breathes easily.
- Be prepared. Mother nature has a mind of her own. Bring a headband or hat with you to the slopes as 60% of heat loss is through the head.
- Drink plenty of water. At 9,700' base elevation, our climate is extremely dry, so it's easy to dehydrate. Staying hydrated also helps prevent altitude sickness.
