No shame in going hard. Stupid, but the fun kind of stupid.

Make sure you don't run, jog, or walk too fast. If you are going up a flight of stares, it's VERY easy to get winded even when you're walking slowly. I do this every time I go up to Colorado and almost pass out just from walking up a flight of stairs.

I have a theory... altitude might not have been the reason you passed out on the slopes

Well, turns out that I have The flu. That’s what was making the altitude sickness symptoms so much worse.

When people move to States like Colorado is this same adjustment common?

That makes sense. Sorry to hear that.

First time in probably 5 years or so I didn't fly over Christmas and not coincidentally, it's the first time I haven't gotten sick during that time of year. So happy to not be on a plane making final approach where my head feels like exploding.

It takes a couple of weeks to adjust.
