Sleep Quality at High Altitude

Have you ever really slept well at altitude? Think back to any number of various ski trips you might have taken in your life.  Specifically those vacations where you might have slept somewhere in Summit county?  Perhaps Keystone or Breckenridge?  Or maybe you went to Eagle, and stayed at Vail or Beaver Creek?  Do you remember […]

Keystone: Building for the Future

The most important fuel for our body: Oxygen

Did you know that the average person can live without food for up to 60 days, without water for up to 3 days, but can suffer permanent brain damage leading to death from just 4 to 6 minutes without Oxygen. The catch is that oxygen is typically available all the time, and is usually everywhere […]

Altitude: Let’s Elevate the Conversation

Unfortunately, many of us are all too familiar with the debilitating effects of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS).  Whether through personal experience, or watching a loved one suffer the relentless headaches, nausea, vomiting, etc. It’s such a powerless situation to suffer through when you’re on vacation and supposed to be having […]
