What a great bucket-list. Got high( in the air) flying with Capn Bubba. From pre instructions to actual flight and champagne breakfast afterward, this is truly a must do in Snowmass. I who am afraid of heights, this breathtaking flight will capture the beauty of the Colorado mountains. Capn Bubba is a fabulous pilot and narrator, and made this trip one I will never forget.

My wife and I flew with Captain Bubba while we were visiting Snowmass/Aspen on our honeymoon. My wife has always wanted to fly in a hot air balloon, while I am afraid of heights. From the start, Captain Bubba put me at ease with his explanations of what to expect and his calm and professional demeanor. The next hour and a half was like nothing I have ever experienced before as we floated along the valley and hills and saw deer and elk, planes fly by, and no shortage of cars stopping to admire us cruising by.
Words can't do it justice, so I recommend if you have the time to hitch a ride with Above it All Balloon Company and Captain Bubba and see some of the most beautiful landscapes from a whole new perspective!

Cap'n Bubba is a trip in his own right, and added an unexpected fun touch to the magnificence of a sunrise balloon ride. We floated over 25-30 elk and 2 bears. Views of the mountains as the sun rises over them is magical.

A wonderfully gracious group of hot air ballooners. Cap'n Bubba was incredibly knowledgeable and put my 11-year old daughter and I to ease immediately. Peaceful, majestic- so quiet up above the mountains. Bubba is a true master of his trade! This is a must-do on your trip to the Aspen/Snowmass area.
