#9 - Altitude Chart

Are you a new cook or a newcomer to the high-altitude areas of Wyoming? Whatever your situation, you may wonder why your cakes continually fall or your favorite cookie recipe just doesn’t taste right. Recipes from low altitudes usually need to be adjusted for altitudes above 3,000 feet. These adjustments are made in time, temperature, or ingredients.

Publications
For information on adjusting recipes to be attractive and tasty, please check out the University of Wyoming Extension Bulletin Altitude Adjusters (Publication: B-734).

Altitudes in Wyoming
In adjusting recipes to prepare a high-quality product or to home-can foods safely, you need to know your local altitude. Below are listed the altitudes for most Wyoming communities, first alphabetically, and then by county.

Note: These altitudes come from the 1997 Wyoming state map. If you are unable to find your community listed, the altitude probably did not appear on the map. If so, locate a nearby community.
