General Information

High Altitude and Weather

As a reminder, the altitude in the Estes Park area is around 8,000 feet, and High Altitude Sickness is something to be aware of.  High Altitude Sickness results when someone is not acclimatized ascends to 8,000 feet or higher. See a doctor for any preventative treatment before arriving at high elevation – especially if you have a history of heart problems or respiratory issues.
Shortness of breath, dizziness, fainting, loss of appetite, abdominal pain, nausea, bloating, fatigue, sleeplessness, headaches, dehydration and palpitations are some of the symptoms of High Altitude Sickness. This results from sudden exposure to low levels of oxygen above 8,000 feet. If these symptoms seem to limit your ability to do routine activities, or seem more profound than for others in your family or group, please contact a physician.Call Estes Park Medical Center at 970-586-2317 if you think you need help. Early evaluation and treatment can correct these problems and allow you to enjoy your time during your visit.
Here are a few recommendations to prevent High Altitude Sickness:
  • Spend a day acclimatizing yourself to the base altitude of your accommodations by catching upon needed sleep, limiting your activities, and drinking at least 8 to 10 glasses of water to hydrate your body.
  • Avoid caffeine-containing fluids to prevent the diuretic effect (increased flow of urine) of caffeine.
  • Avoid immediate exercise at high altitude because this increases your muscle oxygen demand and may deprive other organs of oxygen.
Due to the change in altitude, we will experience a wide variation in temperature. The daily high temperatures in July can reach into the 80’s, with lows typically in the 40’s. Please remember to plan your wardrobe to accommodate both the warmer and cooler temperatures.
