Earths gravity can only reach so far, so with altitude there is a drop in the amount of gravity. This doesn’t mean, however, that if you start at sea level and walk up a flight of stairs that you will feel an extra skip in your step because you are that much lighter. The difference in gravity with altitude is undetectable to a human. To put things into perspective, if you start at sea level, and proceed to the top of Mount Everest (29,029 ft.), you will decrease in weight by about 0.28%. This is assuming you didn’t have to climb the mountain yourself, in which case I’m guessing you would be far greater than 0.28% lighter due to profuse sweating.
