Take in the absolute best views of Park City with a hot air balloon ride high above the town. Gaze out over Kamas Valley as you ascend thousands of feet into the sky with the Wasatch Mountains forming a rugged skyline to the west and the streets of Park City gradually getting smaller and smaller. It’s a smooth ride to the top where quiet contemplation awaits.
Your hot air balloon excursion will begin at sunrise when the atmosphere is the most stable and predictable. Rides take place year-round with every precaution taken to ensure a safe trip. With the balloon fully inflated and the colorful panels of fabric standing at attention, it’s time for your flight. The ascension to the sky will take place gradually that you might be 1,000 feet up in the air before you notice the height you’ve climbed. Because of this, hot air balloon rides are recommended even for those with a fear of heights—as long as they are not in a state of panic—and some have even cited the experience as helpful in overcoming this fear.
During winter, the snow-capped mountains and frost-covered land is a magnificent sight to behold. Come spring, the green of new life begins to emerge and you can see both snow and defrosted forests. Summertime typically offers clear blue skies and green landscapes as far as the eye can see. Once fall has set in, the view is dotted with trees turning autumnal hues of orange, red, and yellow.
