Weather & Altitude

Weather
Temperatures and weather can change rapidly in the Rocky Mountains. Bring extra clothes, check weather reports before leaving home and be prepared. The sun is more powerful in the thin mountain air, so wear sunscreen and sunglasses/goggles with ultraviolet protection.

Altitude
Our clinic sits 8,150 feet above sea level. Some people experience altitude sickness during their visit which may include a headache, nausea, or unusual tiredness. These symptoms usually go away in a day or two. If they grow worse, or if you are worried, be sure to consult a doctor. Some tips to avoid these symptoms include eating foods high in carbohydrates, drinking more water and reducing your alcohol, coffee and sodium intake.
