Living at Steamboat Spring's high elevation may cause you to experience some side effects from the high altitude. What are some of the effects? You may feel lightheaded, dizzy, thirsty, have headaches, breathing problems, sleeplessness, or heart palpations. To make you high altitude experience more pleasurable make sure to drink plenty of water, plan your first couple of days to include lots of rest periods so your body has time to adjust, and avoid alcohol because one drink at this altitude equals three drinks at sea level. If you are under a doctor's care, it is also a good idea to let him or her know you are planning a trip that will include higher elevations. They may have additional tips or wish to change medication levels, etc.
Since during the summer months the high temperatures only reach the 70s and dip into the 40s at night you'll want to pack some sweats and jackets.
Does one of your traveling companions have a button nose and perky ears? Then, just in case of an emergency, you'll find vets at the Pet Care Clinic, 1250 S Lincoln Ave, 970-879-5273; and the Steamboat Springs Veterinary Hospital, 30278 W US Hwy 40, 970-879-1041.
