Jackson Hole enjoys many visitors from Australia each year, with a large percentage of Aussies coming in January in line with their holiday schedules. Australia Day is celebrated annually on January 26th and to get in on the fun, we threw our annual Australia Day party in the Events Tent.

But first, everyone enjoyed a great day of skiing Jackson Hole. A beautiful inversion layer made for a gorgeous morning and rewarded skiers/riders for exploring the upper mountain.

Casper Restaurant even got in on the fun with a featured Australia Day burger. Grilled burger patty, grilled onions, grilled pineapple, fried egg, lettuce, Heinz ketchup, and a side of fries or greens (no Beets, but a delicious burger!)

Once 4PM hit and a great day on the mountain concluded, it was time to celebrate Australia Day. There was free beer and Aussie apps like Sausage rolls and Meat pies. Who doesn’t like free beer?

Our Aussie friends know how to have a good time, so it was no surprise when the beer ran out. Everyone was in great spirits so we had no choice but to bring in more beer! These guys didn’t seem to mind:

Celebrating Australia Day in Jackson Hole was a blast, and was a great opportunity to hang out with all our Aussie friends in one place.
