Cruisin' up there this weekend for some play time. Will definitely check out some of these spots for some good grubs and brewskis. If you spot me say hello! if I don't respond it's because my music is at inevitably-deafening volumes, so SAY HELLO!!

We went during the sculptures last year. Town is packed, so be prepared for that.

And be wary of the high altitude sickness. Some are more affected than others. Felt like a 3 day long body/headache.

I had a good time at Jake's last time I was there even though some two-plankers were probably trying to hit on my wife (the girls ended up there about 2 and we met them there at 4ish). Even after we arrived, these dudes were still pretty chill, hung out for a few hours even bought us shots.

And yes there was a dog who very much appreciated the pizza crust we fed him from our table.

What happened to AS/BurtonAvenger's guide to Breck? I was hoping for a few chuckles.

Almost died out there from altitude sickness.
Had no clue how high Breck's base was.
Will never fly straight from sea level to 9,000 feet again.

That's over 10,000 feet???!!!
I really would've been dead.

Spent few days at Breck and moved to Vail for another 5 days.
Things got much easier once we lowered couple thousands on the base of the mountain (where we stayed).
Still I had bloody nose and all.
Bloody hot mess I was.

I just got back this past weekend from being in breck for a week with a friend, i didnt think altitude sickness was that bad for me IMO. Im from Delaware (36ft above sea level where I live here lol) and the only problem I had was a little bit of blood when I blew my nose. When I got back was the real problem with thick dense air & my ears were stuffed up for a few days. Major key is to drink water up there and everything should be fine

I don't think there's a pattern you can tell who gets effected by altitude more than others.
Even fit professional athletes get effected by and I know a person who does not get any kind of altitude sickness symptoms.
You can try to prevent or minimize the symptoms.
But if you are prone to it, you just gonna get it.

There's pill (Diamox) you can take.
Along with the side effects of dehydration and sensitive to sun (sunburn).

Best way to handle would be gradual ascent, but since I'm out for 7-10 days, don't have that kind of luxury.

I've been to Utah, Colorado and Wyoming.
Most the time symptoms were manageable and will fade away after few days.

But spending first few days in Colorado at Breck (our hotel was literally right next to Beaver Run Super Chair) our bodies were just not having it.
I had bloody nose and my boyfriend was coughing out blood.
He end up going into urgent care and got discharged with an oxygen tank.
Once we moved down to Vail (which's 1,500 ft lower than Breck), symptoms improved immediately.
0 to 9,600 ft was just not ideal.

People always suffer at Breck. My body actually deals pretty good with Altitude.

Last year at Breck was the worst (I actually never had any issue in Utah and Jackson Hole). I just go to like 14 hour sleep (right after plain ride). Wake up next morning and good to go)
