On July 11, 2014 my family went on a hot air balloon ride. We chose Fair Winds based on the longevity of their flight. I couldn't have been more pleased with the experience. Our "Pilot" was Anthony. An AMAZING individual!! His sense of humor made our flight all that much more fun. Everyone that works with Fair Winds has a... More

Fair Winds is top notch in their service and experience! Jeff and his team made you feel right at home, like you are apart of the family. The experience is amazing with views of the Flatiron Mountain Range, Longs Peak and the front range. If you are looking for a once and a lifetime experience while in town, this would... More

Jeff and his crew are some of the most out going people I have ever met! They personally greeted each one of us and made us feel special. It was fun to see the set up and tear down of the balloons and were even allowed to help. Our first reservation had to be canceled due to wind activity, but... More

We had a wonderful experience from beginning to end. Jeff and his crew are extremely accommodating and went out of their way to make sure we were enjoying our experience. We were in the air approximately 90 minutes. The ride was very smooth and the temperature was perfect. They rotate the balloon around so that everyone gets equal views of... More

We had an amazing experience...from beginning to end! Arriving very early to pastries and juice, we were able to watch the balloons fill and light up as the sun began to rise. Outstanding! After boarding the basket, we were treated to 360 degree views by our amazing pilot! He was very knowledgable about the Colorado mountain ranges and other significant... More

My very first hot air ballooning experience was one to cherish. Jeff and his crew were efficient and professional throughout. He fulfilled any requests where possible such as rigging up a Go=Pro to capture all the views, fun and excitement. Participants were encouraged to assist in the inflation, deflation and storage of the balloons. We even had a team of... More
