Default Hhigh Altitude Hop Growing

I'm getting ready to plant my first hops this weekend. I hope they will work out. I don't see why not. I'm going to try to grow Cascade, Sazz, Nugget, Jumbo Nugget, Zeus, Williamette, Mt Hood, and Chinook. I know, maybe a little over board for a first attempt, but go big or go home right???

I'm only writing to see if there are any others on here who are growing at high altitude. I live right at 7000'. If there are any folks out there growing, do you have any specific recomendations for this high of elevation?

Thanks!

I'm a 1st timer this year with cascades at 6700 ft. Had a foot of snow yesterday but fortunately they haven't broken out of the soil yet. All the veggies I planted last weekend are hosed though.

Next year, you may be the high altitude expert. Sorry I can't anything more.

I'm at 7,000' as well. First year grower, though a neighbor of mine (owner of a plant nursery) has been growing quite successfully....

Give 'em as much sun as you can...
