Early morning meet up about 6a in Lafayette (just a short drive from Boulder, where I was staying). A little bit of a wait until some of the clouds burned off but well worth it for the view. Loved seeing the hot air balloons being set up & inflated (there were 6-7 balloons that launched that morning, so it was... More

Our whole family had a great hot air balloon ride on a lovely May morning. We started out at 6 am and saw the balloons inflate and had about an 1.5 hour float high above Boulder and the plains with excellent views of the mountains all the way to Pike's peak in the south and the Rocky Mountain National Park...

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
