What is altitude sickness and what to look for?

Altitude sickness is usually described as a variety of nasty symptoms and can affect anyone traveling to higher altitudes. Whether you have lived in the Rocky Mountains for your entire life or you are on day 1 of your vacation, when the right combination of circumstances hits, no one is immune. Thankfully, the good news is that altitude sickness is usually self-diagnosable.

If you are displaying some of the symptoms below and are at high elevations, you are likely suffering from altitude sickness. For example, some travelers may experience headaches, nausea, or shortness of breath. Typically, symptoms tend to occur within hours after arrival at high altitude. Usually, mild cases of altitude sickness resolve within one to three days; however, severe cases may require oxygen, medications, and moving to a lower altitude.
