Actually lots of recent studies have shown that there aren't any adverse health risks to drinking at high altitudes. It goes against common belief (generally that if you live at lower altitudes, your body will metabolize things more slowly at a higher altitude than your used to), but many studies have shown that high altitude drinking does not make you "more drunk" than drinking at or below sea level, and there aren't any more dangerous long term side effects of drinking at altitude than you would normally get drinking at sea level.

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

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.

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.

We just came from Breck. About a 1/3 of us were hit with altitude sickness (including me) which means splitting headaches and weird body aches. Advil helped for a minute, then a small beer, then it would come back.

2/3 of us (18 total) drank no problem. They were pounding the beer/jameson/cordon bleu/wine. This was with a little acclimation. Denver Friday night, Breck Saturday, Drinking saturday night at the village/cabin. I don't give a shit what studies say, one beer even at Denver elevation was noticeably more potent. I'm taking a damn good buzz after one beer when I could probably do 2-3 to feel the same here at sea level.

But those other fools were pounding drinks and no complaints the next day on the slopes. They did get that full saturday to acclimate I guess.

You're right, I lived in Crested Butte. And I guarantee you won't see me making my first runs at noon. We'll be on first chair patrol the entire week we're there. Count on it.

Unless there's snow might want to let it soften up.

South Ridge is not away from the action, just a block off main near a lot of bars. Anywhere within a few blocks of main street is in the action at Breck.
