How to Prepare for a High-Altitude Adventure

Enjoying a mountain vacation isn’t a tough task … unless you’re dealing with altitude sickness symptoms like dizziness, nausea, headache, and fatigue. Even if you’ve never had an issue with altitude sickness, you could be affected the next time you climb in elevation, especially if you’re heading to a destination above 8,000 feet. A little planning can help you reduce your risk, though, even if you reside at sea level. For one thing, make sure you ascend gradually, adding in an overnight rest for every 3,000 feet you climb; hikers should avoid climbing more than 1,000 to 1,600 feet in a day, and try to sleep at lower altitude to allow for acclimation. Drink about twice as much water as you normally would at home, eat plenty of carbs, and, remember that altitude sickness can become dangerous, so make sure you’re familiar with the signs and are prepared to take action.

Even though most of your Arizona high-country adventures will be between 5,000-7,000 feet in elevation, you still might experience difficult adjustments. Whether it's difficulty catching your breath, trouble sleeping the first night, or feeling the effect of your beer quicker than usual, the elevation will still probably impact you.
