A hot air balloon flight is no doubt an adventure of a lifetime! Endeavor Ballooning creates that adventure in picturesque Jackson Hole near majestic Grand Teton National Park, in northwestern Wyoming. Look no further if a balloon flight is on your "to do" or "bucket" list. Specializing in private balloon flights (5 max passengers per balloon) keeps your flight on a highly personal level to help ensure the ultimate experience. Other companies have larger capacity balloons (up to 18 passengers) which can make the experience more of a bus ride.
OWNER: You are in safe hands with Colin Grahm, owner and senior pilot, who has been ballooning since 1985. His achievements include: flying the largest passenger carrying balloon in the United States, starting 3 balloon companies, and flying all over the world including many invitation only events.
PILOTS: All pilots are certified through the FAA, because balloon
pilots must go through the same regulations as commercial airplane
LAUNCH CONDITIONS: Ballooning is strictly a fair weather sport. Generally, a launch will not occur if wind speeds are more that 8mph. Rain, surrounding storm systems or high wind will postpone or reschedue a flight.
HEIGHT: Flight altitudes range between 200'-2500' off the ground. More than 85% of passengers, consider themselves afraid of heights in some fashion or another, and often find the baskets very secure and comfortable.
FLIGHT: After watching the set-up and inflation of the balloon, your flight time will run 45 -75 minutes in length... with the total ballooning experience from 3-4 hours. Each flight is custom taylored to that day's weather conditions, so estimating the distance of flight is not possible. There is no turbulance, no wind, no swaying and no motion what so ever. Flights are above the Snake River Ranch, just 5 mintues from Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Teton Village.
