I always suggest doing some hard interval work outs (bike, run, row, swim, etc.) before you go to develop a high VO2Max. The higher the VO2max, the less the effect of altitude, at least for me.

Isn't A-basin's base elevation is about 10,000 ft? You'll be a bit out of breadth and slower than locals, but as many have said above just pace yourself (even if you are feeling good don't sprint up) - it's not a race, drink a lot of water, snack often and get enough sleep.
