Fair Winds is a truly professional outfit geared to ensuring you a memorable flight experience. To get the full flavor, be sure to volunteer to help with the launch and recovery procedures. Wear appropriate clothing - you'll be climbing in and out of the basket.

This was our first hot air balloon experience and it was Great! We got to help set up and breakdown the balloon. Our ride lasted around 1:45 minutes and Ed our pilot pointed out areas on the ground of interest. We had 7 of us in the balloon and had plenty of room to see everything and take pictures. When...

My wife and I took our first hot air balloon ride today with Fair Winds...Jeff and his team are wonderful. We had So. Much. Fun! I'm even a bit worried about heights and had no problem whatsoever...the basket has handles! Even the other passengers were fascinating. This is truly a first-class operation, from reservation all the way until past landing.... More

I didn't actually ride in this balloon, but live next door to an impromptu landing spot. I was totally impressed at how quickly the crew deflated, collected and stored the balloon. Fair Winds had iced bottled water for their guests who were all in grand spirits. I chatted with one couple celebrating a wedding anniversary. I wrote a blog on... More

Although I'm not entirely comfortable in some high places, a hot air balloon ride is something that I've wanted to try for a long time. Our recent experience with Fair Winds was great. It was nice to start the morning off with coffee and pastries while watching the balloons being inflated. Audience participation was encouraged right from the start by... More

This company is THE go to place if a balloon ride is on your bucket list. The staff was so enthusiastic and fun. They seem so happy to see us and were eager to help in any way. They were also very informative about the act and the history of ballooning. I asked about the ratio of cubic feet of... More

My dad had seen the balloons in the sky's above Lafayette, Colorado all summer and he turned to me one day and said "I'd sure like to go up on one of those one day". My dad is 87 so I decided that we needed to do this now if we were going to do it so I booked the... More
