Density is proportional to pressure. Increase the pressure and more molecules are pushed into a volume so it gets heavier. Higher in the atmosphere it gets colder but density is lower because there is less pressure pushing the molecules together.
Density is also proportional to average weight of the gas molecules. The ratios of the gasses in air varies a little, particularly the proportion of water vapour which can range from almost zero up to a several percent at the ground in the tropics. “Wet” air will have a slightly lower density than dry air since water molecules are lighter that nitrogen and oxygen molecules. This is a small effect but can be important in meteorology where we have enormous volumes of air.
These are important effects but where the pressure and air composition are roughly THE SAME, like when you open the door of the refrigerator, cold air will be denser.
Airplanes take off when the air passing over their wings creates enough lift — lift greater than the aircraft's weight. That moment is determined by, among other things, the air's density. Air is denser at sea level where there's greater atmospheric pressure. It's also denser in colder conditions; a cold molecule takes up less space than a warmer one. ( confusing )

Beautiful country up there. Too bad you can't ride year round.

Beautiful pics and scenery. I'd ride in that.
here in SW Ohio we should have another 6-8 weeks before the weather get real wintery. Of course most of the bikes/riders will be off the road in another 3 weeks, leaving the roads clear for those of us that shoulder on thru the winter months.
