The high altitude of the Rockies affects everyone to a certain degree. You may find yourself a little short of breath or slightly more fatigued than usual. Please bring sunscreen and/or a hat since the sun’s rays are stronger at the higher altitude. It is wise to drink plenty of water when you arrive in Aspen until your body has adjusted. (We suggest at least 8 glasses of water a day to balance the great wine and spirits you’ll be sampling!)
