AROSA, HOT AIR BALLOONS [v17.03 15 additions, 89 photos]
Usually in late January/early February each year Arosa hosts a hot air balloon week. As with many other alpine events, weather is an important factor but given clear skies this can be a spectacular fiesta. The photos in this gallery were taken in 2009, 2011, 2012 and 2017.
The 2017 photos were taken of a single balloon that appeared to have got into trouble. It is not clear whether the balloon had to put down; put down but was unable to take off again; or was starting a voyage but was unable to take off. Whatever the reason, the crew seemed to have made a good job of deflating the balloon.
