Thebase of Copper Mountain is approximately 10,000 feet above sea level, the summit is 12,313 feet. Visitors from sea level may experience minor side effects due to the altitude. When you first arrive, acclimatize yourself for a period of time prior to beginning strenuous activities. At high elevations, the atmosphere is thinner and there is less oxygen and less humidity available to you than at sea level. This can result in a number of symptoms such as muscle fatigue, insomnia, mild headaches or slight shortness of breath. READ MORE:
