How's it going everyone. I'm a flatlander heading out to Colorado this weekend with a quick question about AMS. I'm an in-shape 34 year old guy, run 5x per week ski 20x per year, etc. Each time I've headed out west I suffered from altitude sickness. The first time I went out to Vail, I had the typical mild symptoms - headaches, nausea, shortness of breath. The last time I went out to Breckenridge I tried taking Diamox to offset the symptoms, however I wound up getting AMS worse! I've been diligent about drinking tons of water and avoiding alcohol, but no luck.
This time around, I plan to sleep the first night in Denver...has anyone noticed if sleeping in Denver helps the first nihgt? Any other advice?
I'm hoping for a fantastic, symptom-free Winter Park trip this weekend! Thanks for your input!
