With every 3,000 feet of altitude, UV levels rise by 10%-12%, so don’t forget to apply sunscreen. We recommend Supergoop! Broad Spectrum Products as they protect against UVB(urning) and UVA(ging) rays, as well as Infrared rays too. 




Summertime means lots of on-the-go activities and you shouldn’t let hunger slow you down. While on the mountain, make sure to pack lots of portable snacks like Nature Valley bars. Real ingredients like 100% whole grain oats, wholesome nuts and real fruit will give you energy and keep you full for all your outdoor activities.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate

Hydration is the best way to help your body adjust to the high altitude of the Rocky Mountains. Remember to carry a water bottle as you’ll want to drink 1-1.5 liters more per day than you typically would. Thirst and headaches are signs of dehydration – beat them to the punch and hydrate beforehand!
