Where to Eat & Drink

Altitude adjustment

Vail is located in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado at 8,000 feet above sea level. Denver is 5,280 feet (1 mile high) above sea level. 

 

Things to Remember When Visiting High Altitude:

1. Drink water! - This is the number one way to help your body adjust easily to our higher altitude. The low humidity in Colorado keeps the air dry, like the desert, so you need about twice as much water here as you would drink at home.

2. Monitor Your Alcohol Intake - In Colorado's rarified air, golf balls go ten percent farther… and so do cocktails. Alcoholic drinks pack more of a wallop than at sea level. It is recommended that you go easy on the alcohol in the mountains and in Denver, as its effects will feel stronger here.

3. Pack for Sun - The sky really is bluer in Colorado. But there's 25 percent less protection from the sun, so sunscreen is a must. Colorado receives over 300 days of sunshine each year (more than San Diego or Miami - they say).

4. Dress in Layers - Check the weather two days before your trip and use this information to pack appropriately. Because you'll be closer to the sun, it can feel warmer than the actual temperature during the daytime, but then become very chilly after sundown.
