Travelling to a cold climate with a medical condition

Travelling with a medical condition can be really daunting, but we cover 1000 of people like this every year.
You don’t have to rule out a skiing holiday, there are just a few more things you need to consider, for example:

High altitude and lack of oxygen
The cold climate
Far more exercise than you are actually used to

A friend of mine was diagnosed with asthma years ago, she had an inhaler at the back of a drawer that she never used. When she went on a skiing holiday the combination of the cold weather, the extra exercise plus the lack of oxygen caused an asthma attack, unfortunately she lost 2 days of her holiday. A bit of forward planning by her, checking with her doctor, could have solved all these problems.
