Balloon glow - 1-18-16
Monday, January 18, 2016
Our annual Hot Air Balloon glow was last night up at the ski area! Spectators have an opportunity to arrive early and watch the balloons being filled.
It's pretty impressive to hear the roar as the hot air fills the balloons.
As all of the balloons get enough hot air and start to rise, things get a little crowded...
But the contrast of the lighted balloon against a darkening sky is stunning!
The event was a precursor to Monday's 42nd Annual Bud Light Cowboy Downhill, which involves a bunch of cowboys from the Denver Rodeo who may (or may not) have experience on skis, competing in a downhill slalom race. It can be hysterical, so this is a somewhat "peaceful" event to have before it!
