My wife and I heard about this from a friend. A fun experience for a pretty reasonable price. We went for a 45 minute glide. Spectacular views and a really exhilarating experience. So glad we tried it.

We were in boulder and I decided to surprise my wife for her 60th birthday with a gliding trip. They were very professional and she had a great time. They took her over the area that we had hiked the previous day. Lots of fun!

As part of a mystery trip to Colorado, my husband booked the extended glider trip for me as a surprise. On the day of my flight, inclement weather (cold, nasty rain, low ceiling, socked in) prevented our soaring that day. MHG worked with us to...More
