years we have enjoyed
flying over the Methow Valley and the old frontier town of
Winthrop. We began flying there just for our own personal
enjoyment, but when some of our passengers heard what we were up to they
wanted to be a part of it! So... welcome to our "working
vacation," the Winthrop Weekend!
We fly in Winthrop only once
a year - over the first full weekend in March (when Friday is in March,
too, not just Saturday and Sunday). The 2015 trip is March 5-8.
very exclusive weekend getaway includes a two-night stay at the
internationally acclaimed Sun Mountain Lodge and a balloon
flight over the
snow-covered Methow Valley on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday morning.
course, the flights are weather permitting but if the weather doesn't
allow for your Winthrop flight, we'll issue you a certificate good for a
flight in our home valley. Either way you can't miss!
When you aren't flying, there are plenty of other activities available -
snowmobile rentals, cross-country skiing, sleigh rides, shopping, and great restaurants.
