I’m at the Travel Influencer Summit in Snowmass, Colorado, where the air is thinner and drier than I’m used to (Snowmass is 8,000 feet above sea level). The host hotel, Viceroy Snowmass, has humidifiers in each guest room closet, but if your hotel doesn’t have one and you’re sleeping at a high altitude, just ask for one. Most hotels offer them, and a humidifier will make a huge difference since the added moisture makes it much easier to breathe and sleep. And don’t forget to drink lots of water if you’re traveling at a high altitude!

    How do you know that the unit has been recently sanitized? When dirty, or when routine maintenance has been ignored, humidifiers can contribute to an overall *decrease* in air quality.

    Since I live at altitude in CO (5000 ft. ), I never would think of this. I’m just laughing thinking about how much trouble I had trying to get a fan in France in 2003 in a record setting heat wave. My French vocabulary improved a bit with all those attempts!

    Never thought about this until now, but it’s actually so important! Great post, really interesting read <3
