[ - ] Probably not the best place to ask, but curious if there is anything one can do for altitude sickness before going on vacation? We went on a ski vacation this year, and once again, 2 full days are gone because DH gets very ill and can't get out of bed and I get to ski alone. 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Where did you go? We are going to Beaver Creek and I am a little worried about altitude sickness. [ Reply | More ]

We went to Breck this year. But same thing happens wherever we go (keystone, copper, vail). Altitude has zero effect on me or the kids, it's just DH. [ Reply | More ]

I just read yesterday that elite athletes sleep with their heads under a little tent to acclimate their bodies to managing on less oxygen. Maybe doing that a week in advance could help him. [ Reply | More ]

from: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/08/magazine/mary-cain-is-growing-up-fast.html?_r=0 "Cain leads the enviable life of a pro athlete. She runs every day — three days a week especially hard, on Nike’s track, where a lush grove of trees fills the infield. The other days she runs at the University of Portland (about a 15-minute drive from Beaverton), where she is a student. Few on campus know she’s a world-class athlete, which suits her fine. Cain lives in a single dorm room with a dozen pairs of running shoes, the Jane Austen novels she reads for fun, snapshots of her Bronxville boyfriend, who is still in high school, and a small tent that she lays her head in while she sleeps, to mimic the low-oxygen atmosphere found at high altitude. (Some runners believe that breathing low-oxygen air will boost their performance.)" [ Reply | More ]

I forget the name of them but we take altitude pills before going and the first several days of our trip and we are fine. They sell them on Amazon. If you type in altitude sickness supplements they will come up. Worked great. [ Reply | More ]
