I am a sometimes skier that FINALLY got to ski out west a few weeks ago. We did Breck on a Sunday evening through Saturday morning. The first few days sucked beyond sucking in regards to feeling the altitude. By the end of the week I was just slightly nauseous throughout the day and my appetite was not what it normally is. Funny enough though skiing from Peak9 on down I felt great. I finally did blue runs with zero issues and thoroughly enjoyed my skiing.
I read everything I could get my hands on regarding altitude sickness, ginko biloba, water, Dr. prescibed pills.
My question though is this, in your humble opinion is there a cut off for altitude sickness once you have gotten it? I realize we stayed at and skied at a high elevation at Breck but I am wondering if staying at 6k and skiing up from there will be an issue since I already got it once.
Just suck it up and pound the pills before hand? Experiment? I may be getting a birthday bonus trip near the end of February so I would like to take full advantage of it.
