High Altitude Health Tips

• Reduce alcohol, caffeine and salty foods.
• Drink 3 or 4 times more water than usual.
• Get plenty of rest before and during your stay.
• Take it easy! Your heart is working harder at this altitude, so quit while you're ahead if you are tired.
• Wear sunscreen - you receive 30% more ultraviolet radiation up here than at sea level!
• Wear sunglasses with ultraviolet protection even on cloudy or snowy days. Your eyes can actually get "snow bum".
• Eat high carbohydrate meals, limiting fat and protein, for the first few days at altitude.
• In winter, keep warm and dry, and be sure clothes are not too tight or cutting off your circulation. Layering is best.

High Altitude Sickness Symptoms
Headache
Nausea
Unusual tiredness
Trouble sleeping

High altitude sickness symptoms usually go away in a day or two, but if you develop a worsening cough or feel like you have fluid in your lungs - - see a doctor immediately!
When in doubt, seek medical help!
