Tips for high altitude

Drink Water — Start drinking water before you get to Colorado, and drink lots of water while you're here.

Monitor Your Alcohol Intake — In Colorado's rarified air, golf balls go 10 percent farther... and so do cocktails.

Eat Foods High in Potassium — Foods like broccoli, bananas and cantaloupe replenish electrolytes by balancing salt intake.

Watch Your Physical Activity — If you normally run 10 miles a day at home, you might try six miles in Colorado.

Pack for Sun — There's 25 percent less protection from the sun here in Colorado, so sunscreen is a must. We'll have some on hand for you, too.

Dress in Layers — Colorado's weather can be unpredictable. It might be warm and sunny during the day, chilly at night. Layers are a must!
