- When you’re in the mountains, all of the effects of bad weather conditions are intensified. The snowfalls are more intense, the fog can be heavier, and the roads are less-likely to be cleared of snow immediately following a storm.
- In addition to these road condition issues, mountainous elevations provide less oxygen than lower elevations. As a result, you might feel dizzy or experience headaches while driving in the mountains. Driving with a co-driver on long trips can minimize these risks by giving each driver time to become acclimated to the higher-elevation conditions.
