What should I watch out for when going to the mountains?

High Altitude Sports

Skiing requires preparation beyond checking the weather up there. If you are going to ski, climb, or otherwise exercise at altitudes over 5000 ft, get to the higher altitude as early as you can and give yourself time to acclimatize before vigorous exercise. Two days should be your minimum conditioning time if you are going to compete.
