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.
