Weather and Altitude

Weather
The days should be high-70s to mid-80s Fahrenheit (21-26 C) and the evenings will be in the 40s F (5-10 C). The weather in Aspen changes very quickly and summertime rainstorms are not uncommon. Sunscreen is encouraged for all attendees.
 
Clothing
The dress code for the Action Forum is "Aspen Casual"- attire can range from jeans, boots, and a rugged button-up shirt to khakis, loafers, and a sport coat. We recommend packing layers as Aspen can be very cold in the morning/evening and hot during the day. If you plan to participate in the hike, bring sneakers or hiking boots. 

High Altitude
Oxygen levels are lower at high altitudes. That coupled with the dry climate can contribute to the symptoms of altitude sickness- nausea, insomnia, shortness of breath, headache, accelerated pulse or nasal congestion. You can prepare yourself by staying well-hydrated, avoiding alcoholic beverages, keeping physical exertion to a minimum and taking in additional oxygen. An oxygen bar will be available.
 

Activities in Aspen

We know many participants are bringing their family to Aspen or taking some extra time before or after the event to enjoy the area. Below are a few activities we recommend you enjoy during your visit to Aspen.
