Recommend! - What an amazing experience!
Every member of the team was so nice and personable. They offered donut holes and hot coffee before taking off, which was a great... read more way to keep our hands warm. The pilot’s wife took pictures of our group and the balloon. We should be getting them via email within 3 days of our trip. The pilot was funny and a great story teller! He shared some history of hot air balloons and we learned a lot about flying. We felt safe and secure while flying, went up about 2000 feet, had a very smooth landing, and then took a shuttle ride back to our cars from the landing point (maybe a 4 minute drive). Shuttle was provided by the crew. The flight lasted about an hour, but the entire process was about 2 hours. Beautiful views of steamboat. Never saw any moose/bear but the pilot had spotted some wildlife the day prior on a flight. Champagne or sparkling apple cider was offered after our flight with story time. Tshirts, hats, and koozies were also available to purchase. A free flight completion certificate was also offered.

Fall colors up high - What a beautiful way to view the fall colors this season. Friendly, funny, and informative crew. They greet you with smiles, kindness, humor, and also leave you with... read more a new knowledge base on the first flights to have ever happened as you cheers a bottle of champagne. Definitely worth the experience and what a beautiful place to have one.

Unforgettable experience - Beautiful day for a balloon ride. We were met by friendly staff and had a great experience from the entire crew at Wild West Ballon Adventures. If experiencing... read more a hot air balloon ride is on your list of things to do and experience, then this is a great team to book with. Enjoying the scenery around Steamboat is extra special from the gondola of a balloon along with the trivia and stories you'll hear from your pilot Bud. Do it!

Ahhh-mazing Experience! - We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary with an early morning balloon ride and it exceeded expectations!
Totally felt safe and we enjoyed learning a bit about the area even... read more though our second home is in Steamboat. The fall colors were gorgeous and cloud cover did not deter us - the low light made for great photos. Bud even impressed us by dipping the balloon into the river. So fun!
It’s a totally different perspective to view the valley from a hot air balloon.
And Stacia is a great storyteller! Loved the post-flight champagne and history of ballooning! Many laughs included.
My only regret? That we didn’t do this years ago! Highly recommend.

I had a great ride with Bud in his balloon! You start out with the mountains in the distance and within 15 minutes you are gently flying above them. And... read more you get a great view of the Steamboat Springs Resort and all the beautiful ski slopes running down the mountain! My wife couldn't go on the flight, but she could see us from our room in the resort and loved the video that I took! Thanks to Bud and his great crew for a terrific trip!!
