Captain Bubba and his crew were great! Our family of 5 loved our early morning hot air balloon ride. It was an extremely well run operation. Bubba went over safety instructions as his crew inflated the beautiful balloon. Once we got in the basket, it was only seconds before we were floating above Aspen. Bubba explained a bit about how...

I can't rave enough about our experience with Above It All Balloon Company. Pam was a gem in scheduling our flight, and accommodating a reschedule request. Captain Bubba was fun and skilled, and the entire team was a delight. There aren't words for how beautiful it is to explore the valley by hot air balloon; my husband and I were... More

This was our first balloon flight and it was incredible . Bruce is a phenomenal pilot. He touched us down twice in the Lake Havasu Channel right beside the London Bridge. This experience far surpassed our expectations. Pam and her ground crew were were totally awesome😃 we would highly recommend this company again. RATING 5/5

This was our first time in a hot air balloon and it was a great experience! Took the sunrise tour. The pilot Andy/Bubba was great! The company is FAA certified and everything went smoothly. We were up in the air for almost an hour and the company had a champagne breakfast for us when we landed (bagels, fruit, small danishes).... More

My wife and I have been completing a bucket list year. She suffered a stroke a few years ago and has some physical challenges. The flight itself was incredible. The crew was amazing with the loading and unloading process. Bubba is an experienced pilot that provided fun insights on ballooning and the area. Definitely worth the experience.

Wonderful ride above the Rockies in time to catch a spectacular sunrise! The crew was great and Captain Bubba was the best, professional yet entertaining and very informative. We've been going to Snowmass for many years but Captain Bubba taught us a lot about the area, and once landed, he gave a fantastic history of ballooning. Don't hesitate if you... More

Went with my 83 yo Dad for ride with Capt Bubba, and we had the most amazing experience of a lifetime! Capt Bubba is a very experienced pilot, very knowledgeable about the area, and he did an excellent job both piloting the balloon along the valleys and ridges, and explaining how he uses the wind currents in a mountain atmosphere....

If you have any doubts about doing this, stop. Just do it and you'll be handled by a truly professional team. Worth every penny, and the early start.

Captain Andy "Bubba" picked us up at our hotel before it was light... bleary eyed, we crawled in the van and let him help wake us up with his texas drawl and stories about the area and balloons. Once we got to the launch site and saw the balloon, the excitement started, and never quit. Andy and his team were... More
