It seems that no matter where you live and no matter where you dive in Colorado there seems to be some high pass you have to cross to and from diving.

To be conservative we dive the altitude tables corresponding to the altitude of the pass we'll be crossing later, not the altitude of the dive. Of course this won’t work with most dive computers since they’ll figure out the altitude on their own and you’ll dive the site altitude. I guess on some Suuntos you can set altitude ranges, but I just dive tables at altitude to make things easy.

If you realy think about it, turns out the physics aren't perfect, but diving the pass' altitude combined with procrastinating as long as possible afterwards before setting out empirically works here...
