How do you steer a balloon?
Balloons simply float with the wind. The pilot can control the balloon's altitude to find a wind going in the desired direction, but you cannot fly upwind or crosswind.
Preflight planning insures the pilot knows which way the balloon will be traveling, and the pilot makes sure there are plenty of suitable landing sites downwind. You'll be amazed how the pilot is able to steer the balloon during your balloon ride!
Famous Balloon Quote:

One of the most dangerous weather conditions balloonists face is thunderstorms. During the pre-flight weather briefing, balloon pilots want radar summaries to show thunderstorms no closer than 100 miles from the flight area. In flight, the pilot constantly looks for changing conditions which could signal convective activity. At the first sign of building cumulus clouds, rapidly changing wind direction on the surface, or other such indicators, the balloon should get on the ground as quickly as possible.
