The hot air balloon pilot’s ability to navigate the balloon is the ability to find air currents ascending different elevations.

Some rides stay within a few hundred feet above the ground while others can rise upwards of 8,000 feet depending on local winds.

Taking off from the Snohomish Airport the first step is to unpack the 400-pound balloon like a giant sleeping bag. Initially filled with cool air then the hot air from dual high-powered propane burners provides lift.

The otherwise gentle quiet ride is temporarily interrupted by loud hot blast of from the burners to give lift in searching for traveling air currents.

Gaze down to the picturesque train-set like scenes below. Take advantage of this unique perspective with views from Mount Baker, Pilchuck, the Central Cascades and Olympic Mountains down to Mount Rainier.
