Telluride Colorado sits at almost 8,800 feet in elevation. The Mountain Village sits at over 9,500 feet in elevation. At altitudes this high, there is far less oxygen available for us to breathe than at sea level. How much less you ask? Well in the town of Telluride you’re looking at 74 of the oxygen available at sea level.
Telluride offers a plethora of outdoor activities such as skiing and snowboarding, the world famous Telluride Bluegrass festival, hiking, climbing, fishing and rafting.
In order to fully enjoy being outdoors at altitudes this high, you need to pay attention to symptoms of altitude sickness and your sleeping patterns. Stay hydrated, ascend slowly, and if needed look for supplemental oxygen solutions.
As many people know, sleeping at altitude can be a challenge itself. A form of central sleep apnea called High Altitude Periodic Breathing begins to impact many people at just 6,000 feet.
