I highly highly suggest you use another company. I was incredibly excited for a hot air balloon ride with dear friends in Aspen and was completely disappointed and taken advantage of by their rude and unprofessional service. Our sunrise ride was cancelled last minute without any notification. It was not until we arrived at 5 AM to see no balloon... More

Unfortunately, TripAdvisor's review guidelines have no way to determine if a reviewer is telling the truth. As with every “story”, there are always two sides. The other side of this story, is that this guest's original flight was cancelled the morning of their flight, due to unsafe weather conditions. Our pilot called the guests to inform them of the cancellation,... More

I was extremely nervous about going up in a hot air balloon. We took off from Snowmass and landed just before you arrive to Old Snowmass. We stayed up in the air about an hour and fifteen minutes...about 20-30 minutes of that was at about 11,000 feet. The scenery was beautiful and got lots of amazing pictures. Once up there... More

I was excited to go on my first hot air balloon ride, and this exceeded my expectations. From the majestic Colorado scenery to Bubba, our incredible guide, who made us feel safer in that balloon than in any other vehicle I've been in, and who made the ride fun and informational, if you're ever going to ride in a hot...

I took my best friend ballooning yesterday and it was a definite highlight of her vacation and my summer. I have lived in Aspen/Snomwass for 8 years so this was an extra treat for me. Owner, Pam, was extremely accommodating and our Captain, Bubba, kept everyone entertained and safe. I will recommend it for all my guests in the future!... More

It is brutal to get up early to be in the parking lot by 530am - but it is truly worth the extra effort. "Capn Bubba" is an excellent pilot and his personal charm made the trip that much more enjoyable. Floating above the valley at about 1000 feet was peaceful and thrilling. We didn't expect to see wildlife below... More

Went on this ride with my sister and her friend. Definitely nervous in the beginning but the ride was so fantastic we did not want it to end. Our pilot, Captain Bubba, otherwise known as Andy was excellent. He has lots of flying hours and his passion for ballooning is evident in everything he says and does. After the ride... More

This is the best way to start the day and see the beautiful rockies from above. Cptn Bubba was an excellent skipper, host and Texan racanteur. The scenery was breathtaking. Don't miss it.
