Noah Abrams, 7, of Houston, Texas, gets to hit a switch to trigger a large flame during the modified Balloon Glow at Steamboat Resort on Sunday, Jan. 15, 2023. The balloons weren’t inflated, as they couldn’t get wet from the snow. Still, hundreds gathered in Steamboat Square to enjoy the Candle Glow.

A half dozen pilots sat in balloon baskets and illuminated their flames at the Steamboat Resort base area on Sunday, Jan. 15, 2023. The balloons themselves couldn’t be inflated, as falling snow would have gotten them wet.

The Balloon Glow at Steamboat Resort was modified to a Candle Burn because of heavy snow, as balloon envelopes cannot get wet. Still, hundreds of people still convened in Steamboat Square to enjoy the event on Sunday, Jan. 15, 2023.

Hundreds gathered in Steamboat Square to skate, sip hot cocoa, listen to music and enjoy the warmth and awe of the flames from balloon baskets. The modified Balloon Glow didn’t feature any inflated balloons, as the material would have gotten wet from falling snow.
