Yep know your kind going to see you limping to the mountain at noon talking about the night before. Cool you lived here before doesn't mean you lived in Breck otherwise you wouldn't be asking about night life.

Now if you're suffering from altitude sickness already and you begin drinking heavily I'm sure that you will exacerbate the problem, but if you're feeling good alcohol won't hurt you anymore than it does normally
Studies also show I think you're a fucking idiot for posting about studies. You can find a study on anything in the world doesn't make it accurate. Dare you to come out here and drink like you would at sea level see how it effects. Oh wait that wouldn't be a study that would be a hands on approach and people that only go by studies never do anything hands on.
