Getting Here

Effective SPF Protection

The amount of UV rays that reach the Earth's surface increase with altitude. Georgetown is 8,530 ft. in elevation, so be sure to pack strong sunscreen while visiting.

Attire and Clothing

Georgetown tends to be significantly cooler than Denver all year long. Weather can also make quick, dramatic changes. Keep this in mind when packing, especially if you intend to venture out into nature.

High Altitude Environment

Altitude can have pronounced negative effects on some individuals. These effects can be mitigated by ascending slowly, limiting alcohol intake, and staying hydrated.
