High altitude sports and entertainment: Select case studies


Author(s): Bijender Singh and Dr. Sandeep Bhalla

Abstract: High altitude sports are generally most entertaining and safe for recreational tourists/athletes, but they should be aware of their individual risks. It is a well-known fact that there is less oxygen at higher elevation. When looking at the effective oxygen content of air at altitude compared to sea level, there is 15% less oxygen at 5,000 feet (elevation of Denver), 26% less oxygen at 8,000 feet (elevation of Aspen), and 41% less oxygen at 14,000 feet (elevation of the Colorado 14ers)! [ ] So high altitudes make it harder to breath. The benefits of training at such high altitudes include: Get better endurance due to increased red blood cell count; perform better at high and low altitudes; because you get to train in places which are most scenic and best for adventure sports and entertainment; etc. Select case studies, to get more details about high altitude sports and entertainment at a global level, include: Kroenke Sports & Entertainment (KSE), USA; Altitude Sports, USA; Calgary Sports and Entertainment Corporation (CSEC), Canada; and True North Sports and Entertainment Limited (TNSE), Canada.
