In Summit County our elevations range from 9,000 to 12,000 feet above sea level. Many people traveling from a lower elevation to a higher elevation may experience health problems ranging from Altitude Illness, Acute Mountain Sickness, dehydration, sun burn and rare, but potentially fatal cases of HAPE (High Altitude Pulmonary Edema), which affects the heart. Our medical professionals are specially trained to recognize and treat the signs and symptoms of altitude related illnesses.
