Studies have shown that ski resorts above 8,000 feet pose the highest risk to those who are not acclimated to high elevations. Depending on the elevation that you live at, you may not feel the effects. But for those coming in from sea level it is helpful to keep in mind that at 8,000 feet, oxygen is reduced by 25%.
