Australians finding themselves in a ski resort in the USA, Canada or Japan on Australia Day may also find a BBQ or two, depending on where you are. North American resorts particularly love their Australian guests and get into the spirit with all sorts of Australian focused events.
So, if Australia Day is your thing then head to these ski resorts for some Aussie pride.
SilverStar Mountain Resort in Canada
The annual Australia Day Celebration Run is on again. Grab your bikini, mankini, budgie smugglers, boardies and togs and take a hot lap down Milky Way. Meet at the bottom of the Comet at 11.00am and prepare for a laugh.
Big White, Canada
Shred with the resort’s mascot, Boomer the Kangaroo. Meet at the top of the blue Kangaroo run at 11.00am. Grab a snag or sausage sanger at The Woods from 11.00am for an Aussie Day party.
Whistler Blackcomb, Canada
If you haven’t got your tickets to the Australia Day Garden Party at GLC then you’ll need to pull a favour because the party is already sold out. Never fear you can start early at The LongHorn from 10.00am for the annual Aussie Day festivities on the deck.
