Yes, baking at higher altitudes is challenging. The challenges vary with the product and the altitude; adjusting a recipe is often a trial and error process. There is basic information in our brochure which is available at the link below. For more detailed information and tested recipes, you may want to get a copy of the book, High Altitude Baking by Pat Kendall.
