The Effects of Altitude on Visitors
Aspen and Snowmass Village are approximately 8,000 feet in elevation. If you’re skiing or hiking, you may ascend another 3,000 – 4,000 feet. There is less oxygen and less humidity available to you than at sea level, and a variety of symptoms can result. For most people, the minor symptoms of altitude will disappear as your body adjusts. This may take a few days or a few weeks.
