Winthrop Weekend  


For 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 2018 trip is March 1-4.

This very exclusive weekend getaway includes a two-night stay at the internationally acclaimed Sun Mountain Lodge and a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday morning balloon flight over the snow-covered Methow Valley.


Of 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.


Join us and experience a true "flight of fancy."  You'll treasure your memories forever!

The 2017 fee for this unique weekend getaway is $425.00* per person.  (It's worth every penny!)  A $150.00 deposit per person is required to hold your reservation, with the balance due by February 15.  Reservations are accepted all year long.  Call now to place your reservation!
