What is the air quality like at post (good/moderate/bad)? Are there seasonal air quality issues? Does the air quality have an impact on health?
Great--this is the cleanest air of anywhere I've lived. One issue to be aware of--we're up high, so the air is thin. It will take time to adjust, and you likely will never fully adjust. - Apr 2021
Air quality is quite good! Easily the best I've seen in my career. The air is thin (due to elevation), so it takes time to acclimate. The elevation can cause some health problems for people, esp. insomnia, until the person acclimatizes. - Dec 2019
Air quality is great. The air is a bit thin due to altitude. - Feb 2019
No, air is crisp and clean, the best thing about living here. Some burning of trash but itâ€™s tolerable. There are no industies really, so no serious air issues. - Sep 2018
Good. The only thing to consider is the high altitude. - Dec 2016
