Hot Air Balloon Rides in the Vail Valley
Hot air ballooning is a year-round hot activity here, with majestic tours soaring high above the beautiful Eagle River Valley and the ski resorts of Vail and Beaver Creek. Surrounded by brilliant blue skies and breath catching Rocky Mountain Vistas, this is an adventure not to miss!
The rides start early (usually by 6 am) and just like pretty much every other Colorado activity, it’s recommended that you dress in layers. Early morning on the launch field can be quite chilly. Thankfully, the fire from the balloon keeps the actual ride temperature quite comfortable, but Colorado weather changes in an instant, always be prepared with warmer clothing options. Launches are weather dependent, so always stay in touch with the pilot before the ride to make sure that it’s a good day for ballooning.
