Our 2015 flight operations are closed for the season. The 2016 flight schedule will be posted soon. Flights are offered 7 days a week, weather permitting.
Due to the high altitude mountainous environment that we fly in we experience harsh weather conditions and persistent strong winds in the late Fall, Winter and early Spring that prevent us from flying during that time period. Please note that our reservations department is open 365 days a year.

Our fleet of balloons can accommodate up to 23 passengers per day. Larger groups can be accommodated with advance notice.

Please book early in your stay in case inclement weather creates the need to reschedule your flight.

Our flights are approximately one hour in the air. We fly in a high altitude, mountainous environment and weather conditions can change quickly. Therefore, our flights may be longer or shorter than stated due to weather, safety concerns and/or availability of landing sites. Please allow a good portion of your morning for the entire experience.

All passengers must sign a Release of Liability and Assumption of Risk Agreement prior to participation.
