    Our flight was amazing! Jack and Sue are totally awesome! Jack shares his great knowledge of the Fraser Valley, which has the most beautiful scenery I have ever encountered in Colorado. You can see lots of wildlife, We saw antelope, and often there are moose, coyotes, deer and elk. Jack and Sue are the most friendly and responsible balloon operators in the world. Their dogs are adorable! Their service is impeccable! If you are visiting the Winter Park area, do not miss out on this!

    Hot air ballooning has been on my list of “must dos” for a long time and never did I think of it as a winter activity. However, now having done it I can say that this has been by far the neatest experience I’ve had yet in Colorado. Our January morning was beautiful: bluest sky ever and sun was beaming! The temp in Fraser, CO was frigid (the icebox of the continental US), but the sun warmed us up right away. The balloon basket was a perfect size, carrying us 5 that day. The view of the Winter Park slopes was indescribable, the air calm, the ride peaceful. It was so cool to be suspended hundreds of feet above dog sleds winding through the snowy valleys. Jack, the pilot, was obviously well experienced and they had a great group running the take-off and landing. The couple who operate this outfit did an awesome job, ending our morning with fruit and champagne back at the take-off site. Just an awesome ending to a Colorado morning I’ll never forget. If you’re looking for a high, don’t miss this.

    We went up with Grand Adventure in early March 2013. My wife and I, my son and his soon to be wife went with another couple and of course Pilot Jack. I am from Iowa and we were skiing and snow boarding in Winter Park area. This was the highlight of the trip. A must do bucket list item. Do not let your fears stop you from this amazing experience. There is no fear as the ascent is slow with very little sense of movement. It is warmer aloft than at ground level and the basket is tall enough to not allow one to fall out if one tried. Pilot Jack was a great guide and the champagne toast after with rolls or muffins was traditional as is the certificate of flight! A lifetime memory that must not be missed. We could hear for it seemed like miles and see further. We saw fox and coyote hunting in the snow, a dog sled ride and the beautiful Colorado mountains. I will do this again, it was that amazing!

    Had a fantastic ride back in March with GABT! My wife and I enjoyed the beautiful drive from Breckenridge to the launch site and were immediately greeted with a warm welcome once we arrived. No time was wasted and we hopped right into the basket, got our pictures taken, and off we went.It was great learning about the balloon and the area from the pilot. The scenery was absolutely stunning and the pilot made it a point to try to hit areas of interest.Upon landing, we learned more about ballooning traditions and had pastries and a champagne toast waiting for us.We spent several more hours in the area exploring some of their suggestions for local spots to check out.Ballooning has been on my “bucket list” a long time, and I couldn’t think of a better place or group to put a check in that box with.

    I was bound and determined to take our children on a balloon ride when we went to Colorado. I even saved the money myself so my husband couldn’t have any excuses. Sue and Jack were awesome and handled everything perfectly. From pictures to a science lesson, everything was covered. And not to mention the spectacular scenery. Defefinately a bucket list must.
