Is the weight of the column of air above a pereon standing on a low altitude and a high altitude same ? if yes why dont we feel it ???

Dear Student
The weight of the column of air above a person standing on low altitude and high altitude is different because less total mass in atmospheres is less on high altitude 
We don't feel it because 
Human bodies are used to air pressure. The air pressure in our lungs, ears and stomachs is the same as the air pressure outside of our bodies, which ensures that we don't get crushed. Our bodies are also flexible enough to cope when theinternal and external pressures aren't exactly the same.
