My family decided to take a winter balloon flight, along the front range, as a family adventure when gathering after our Thanksgiving Day. Since it is winter, we dressed in layers and wore gloves, warm hats, warm shoes. Taking pictures with our phones and a hand held camera was a must for this 2 hour adventure. Our pilot had to know our collective weight prior to the flight so that he could choose the balloon and basket needed for the flight. I do believe if taking a child, that child would need to be over 4 ft tall to see over the baskets side. We met our flight and chase team in a large farmer's field just outside of Lafayette, as the sun was rising and as the team set out the gigantic tarp that our balloon would be laid upon. Each balloon has a name and our ballon's name was "Cruiser". As they began to blow heated air into the balloon, it was fun to help hold the balloon to allow the air in or just stand and watch the crew prepare the balloon for lift off. We had senior adults on this adventure who were assisted by the balloon team, in getting into the basket. All others climbed in easily. There was plenty of room in the basket. It had a compartment for the pilot and 2 compartments for the passengers. The pilot was able to turn the balloon so that both passenger compartments were able to see in all directions. Our trip statistics were kept by the pilot's phone and we went up 2,900 feet and traveled on various air currents over several miles. The mountain and plains, as seen from this height, were astounding and the pilot was able to tell us which mountains we were viewing and the surrounding landscape that went from Wyoming to the Arkansa Valley and out east past Greeley. We were able to see the towns below us and all the new construction sites, along with the coyotes and other farm animals and agricultural fields that stretched out underneath us. The sky was clear, the air cool, the view breathtaking, the company enjoying every view, and the captain and chase team did a fine job. Our captain has had a great deal of experience and shared his flight background and experience. At the end, each person is given a t-shirt, a celebratory drink (ours was a mimosa), a group or individual photo, and our flight information texted to our individual phones. The flight information displayed our altitude, flight pattern, and length of time in flight. We will fly with them again and our winter adventure was a hit with everyone that went. This is one of the only companies that takes flights on winter days, others stop at Thanksgiving and start again in late spring. We highly recommend this as a grand adventure, something to check off of your bucket list and one to share with those you love.

A good and fun way to experience your first ballon ride and to see the wider Boulder area from a different perspective. The team around Cindy and Tony made this tour a very professional organized and pleasant experience. Highly Recommended
