Here is some helpful information to make your trip to Leadville and Twin Lakes more enjoyable.

High Altitude Tips

The altitude in Leadville, Colorado, is 10,152 feet above sea level, with area mountain peaks reaching more than 14,400 feet. Altitude illness can affect anyone, regardless of age or physical condition, at altitudes above 6,000 feet. Be sure to drink plenty of fluids, and avoid alcohol, caffeine, and strenuous exercise the first few days of your visit. If you experience shortness of breath, a persistent headache, nausea or vomiting, seek medical attention.

Due to the high elevation and thinner air, there is less natural protection from the sun here. With an average of 310 sunny days each year, sun protection is a must.
