Furnace. Not lighting at altitude

Has anyone had this problem? Our furnace worked great at home (5000) ft but at 8400 would not light. Once we got home it worked fine.

It is not unusual for furnaces and propane appliances in general to struggle at altitude, there is less oxygen to burn.. I think there are some work arounds that others may be able to suggest.
