Believe it or not, 40% of visitors will have some symptoms of Altitude Sickness when visiting the mountains of Crested Butte. Why suffer? Don't wait anymore - Alpine Oxygen will rush over and deliver your Crested Butte oxygen rental.

It is best to use your oxygen rental as soon as you arrive in Crested Butte for 20 minutes or more when you sleep and as symptoms dictate. In other words, “If you are feeling bad, use the oxygen.” In most cases, patients sleep with oxygen, then go skiing or hiking the next day and, after a while, may start to feel the effects of high altitude again. They just go back and use the oxygen until they feel better, repeating this process until the end of their visit, and they descend. Sometimes 20 minutes is all they need.

Renting Oxygen in Crested Butte from Alpine Oxygen will help save your vacation from Altitude Sickness! You'll sleep better, have an appetite, lose your headache, stop feeling nauseous and have more energy, and will enjoy your visit more completely.
