Tell them to be patient, because they're about to experience a ride they won't soon forgetsunrise above the Rockies inside a hot-air balloon. Morning Star Balloons (435.645.7433; www.morningstarballoons.com) takes you to the skies at the start of the day, when the winds are calm and you can float gently around on the brisk thermals for half-hour or hour-long voyages. A continental breakfast is served, with champagne for mom and dad to toast their wiseand yes, potentially budget-breakingdecision. However, just remember that when most people are waking up to hit the slopes, you've already been on top of the world. Half-hour balloon rides run $99 per person, $175 per person for an hour-long trip.
