See the glow of more than a dozen hot air balloons as they light up the night in Snowmass Village. Balloons will be tethered at multiple locations around Snowmass Town Park and the Snowmass Club golf course, and will “dance” to music via a live broadcast on KSPN 103.1 FM.
This is a drive-through event. Guests may view the Balloon Night Glow from inside their cars by driving around the golf course via Brush Creek Road, Owl Creek Road, and Highline Road. You may drive either clockwise or counter-clockwise to loop the golf course, as many times as you would like. Tune your radio to KSPN 103.1 FM to listen to the live broadcast and playlist.
Guests also have the option to watch from local trails, although headlamps and reflectors, along with trail etiquette are encouraged.
Gathering at the event venue in Snowmass Town Park is not permitted. There is no registration required to view the Balloon Night Glow.
Before or after taking in the sights of the balloons, stop in at Snowmass Base Village or stroll the Snowmass Mall for dinner. A bounty of dining options, many with open-air dining, will please any palate. Parking is free in the Base Village Parking Garage and the numbered lots on Carriage Way.
