This was a bucket list item for me! We had no idea what to expectbut I can tell you that it was even more than what I could have... read more expected! It was beautiful and relaxing! So, so cool! We had a great weather day. We also had a “gold star” landing which means we landed in the same location we departed from! We loved the history lesson and Mimosas at the end! Thanks to the team for an AMAZING day!!!

As they picked us up at our rental condo, had snacks at the launch area, took pictures before after and during the flight, had a champagne toast after the flight, and shuttled us back afterwards.

This is a must while visiting Steamboat Springs. We decided to book a balloon ride during our stay in October and it was amazing. It might be the prettiest time... read more of the year to experience Steamboat from the air. This was our first balloon ride and I'm a little scared of heights, I felt comfortable the entire time and wasn't nervous at all. The crew helped with a smooth take off and landing. Bud did a fantastic job piloting the balloon and educating us about all the mountain ranges and surrounding area.
