Since the beginning of time people have dreamed of flight. Ballooning is exhilarating and peaceful, thrilling, pleasant, romantic, and daring. All while quietly floating in space.
We are located in the most scenic group of mountains on the Colorado eastern slope. Not too close to the mountains and not to far away. Spectacular views of the Never-Summer and Mummy mountain ranges, the 14,259′ Longs Peak, and Indian Peaks wilderness area are visible on most flights.
The scientists at the NOAA center proclaim that this area’s weather is unique in the world. Our high altitude, huge mountains and special wind patterns make this a great place to balloon. The “Shadow of Longs Peak” is an area that is generally protected from severe weather and provides many days of sunshine and spectacular views. This makes for many great ballooning opportunities. On days where there may be an upslope or East wind, we travel out from the mountains and still have an amazing time with a whole new view of the Front Range.
