Hot Air Balloon Rides: The Best Way to See Steamboat
Everyone has a bucket list… and if yours is like mine, it is filled with stuff that any adrenaline junky would love to try like sky diving or bungee jumping. But what about hot air ballooning? Flying a few thousand feet above the ground in a balloon that is defying gravity solely with heated air is pretty cool. You still get an adrenaline rush, and it is by far the best way to see Steamboat! During your visit, cross this off your list after taking a ride with the Wild West Balloon Adventures and Pegasus Balloon Tour crews!
Taking a hot air balloon ride with Wild West and Pegasus isn’t just about getting up in the balloon for an hour—you get the whole experience! Flights are only offered in the mornings, so these companies thought of you… before take-off, they will provide you with a complimentary breakfast to help you fuel up for the big bucket list adventure. Upon landing, a champagne celebration only seems fitting… after all, you did just see the whole of Steamboat from a very long ways up! To top it all off, the team at Wild West and Pegasus also provide shuttle service upon request!
How should you dress for such an event? While the temperatures in the balloon are typically warmer, the air temperature around you is colder in the mornings than you may expect. It is suggested that you wear layered clothing and comfortable shoes. Set your alarm clocks and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime! Item #15… CHECK!
