Balloon Pilots, Ken and Lana Smith took their 1st Hot Air Balloon Ride back in 1983 during a business trip to Las Vegas, Nevada. In between corporate meetings and banquet dinners, they took time out from their busy schedule to squeeze in some fun! They went sightseeing to Hoover Dam, shopped in all the fabulous casino stores, took in several Las Vegas shows and then... Ken and Lana made a decision that would change their lives. They decided to take a sunrise hot air balloon ride! That one balloon ride, turned into a life long career and a full time business. After just one flight, they fell in love with hot air ballooning ... and the rest is history!
Ken and Lana wanted to share their story with you because ... they say that the #1 most popular question through the years, from all their passengers, is how did you get involved in ballooning? The second most popular question is, what else do you do? What do you do during the off season winter months?
Ken and Lana love to travel and they both love adventure. They have two favorite passions at the top of their list! They love to fly their hot air balloons and they are both expert skiers. So, during the off season winter months, Ken and Lana head out west to hit the slopes to enjoy all that fresh powder!!! Since they have so many favorite ski resorts on their list, they try to visit as many as they can. Their first stop is always Aspen and Vail Colorado, then it's on to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. But, Ken and Lana's final destination is always Salt Lake City, Utah, where they always meet up with their family and friends in Park City, Utah. The entire family loves to ski! Their favorite ski resorts in Utah are Alta, Snowbird, Snow Basin, Deer Valley and Park City.
