Copper Mountain and Frisco are over 9100 feet. The majority of visitors will have no problem with the altitude. However, if you are traveling from sea level, it's wise to follow some high altitude guidelines in order to enjoy your vacation.
- Spend at least a day acclimating. Easing into your vacation will improve your chances of avoiding high altitude issues.
- Avoid maximum physical exertion for the first 1-2 days.
- Stay hydrated with water and sports drinks. Because of the low humidity in Colorado's mountain environment it is very easy to become dehydrated.
- Use humidifiers in sleeping areas.
- Limit alcohol and caffeinated beverages. Keep in mind that one alcoholic beverage at altitude has the effect of three at sea level.
- Eat small, low fat, high carbohydrate meals.
- Limit time in hot tubs and sauna.

We rented Copper Junction 401 and it was a great place to stay. It is close to everything. The lift is out the side door (you can take the stairs or elevator) , there is a pizza place and ski rental shop in the building too. You can see the torch parade and fireworks in the warmth of the condo, as well as other happenings in the main area of the village. The bus stop is out the back door if you need to use the bus and the parking is under the building. We have four adult children and our girls took over the loft and our boys the upstairs bedroom leaving the downstairs bedroom to me and my husband...very quiet and a nice big king bed. Leigh, the manager, is very prompt in answering questions and helping with discounts.
