High Altitude Tips
Basalt is at about 6,600 feet above sea level. Visitors may experience some minor side effects due to Basalt’s high elevation. Here are a few tips and suggestions for staying healthy and enjoying your stay in the mountains.
- When you first arrive acclimatize yourself for a period of time prior to beginning strenuous activities.
- Light activity is better for this process then sleeping because respiration rates decrease when we are asleep.
- At high elevations, the atmosphere is thinner; there is less oxygen and less humidity available to you than at sea level.
