We offer our Mountain Hot Air Balloon Flights in the South Park Valley located high in the central mountains in the exact center of Colorado. Located between Hartsel and Wilkerson Pass and perched above 9,000 feet this unique historical area offers the ultimate topography for hot air ballooning with a mixture of vast rolling hills, 360 degree mountain views and native wildlife. We provide complimentary transportation for those passengers staying in Summit County and the Vail Valley. These passengers will meet us at our central meeting place in Breckenridge where we will provide transportation from there to and from the launch site.

I don't know if there is a minimum and maximum weight limit. I think they ask for weights so they can fill the basket accordingly. We had 13 people in our basket.

There are no weight restrictions. They will ask for your weight and they will fill the balloon ride until the total weight capacity is met. When we went, there were 11 people total in the balloon.
