Altitude Issues in Keystone
Above 8,000 feet, altitude illness affects 20 to 30 percent of visitors from low elevations to some degree. The first thing most people notice is a shortness of breath, especially when exercising. In addition, the heart is likely to beat faster and one may develop nausea, fatigue, headache, or have difficulty sleeping. If you develop one or more of these symptoms, you may have Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). If these symptoms do not subside within a day or two, consult a doctor.
Weather: Keystone is located in the Colorado Rockies at about 9,000 ft. elevation. The weather can be quite variable. By late August, most of the stormy summer weather is gone and days are typically sunny to partly cloudy with highs in the 60s and 70s. Temperatures drop off quickly after sundown and can get into the 40s and 50s by early evening.
