A WORD ABOUT ALTITUDE
Denver is known as "The Mile High City" and this year's MAAIS location is situated some 3500 feet higher in the Colorado Rockies. If you have a respiratory or heart condition, consult with your physician before making the trip. If you are coming from sea level, consider spending a day in Denver before the Summit, or arrive early to help your body adjust. Most people who follow these tips for high altitude travel adjust quickly. See you at the Summit!
