Have a Ball with Elkfest and Jackson Resorts!
Spring is just around the corner in beautiful Jackson Hole. Come mid-april the snow will be melted and almost gone, the temperatures will be reaching into the 50s, and the animals will be coming out of hibernation. Spring is one of the best times of year to vacation with Jackson resorts. There are plenty of great things to do once all the snow has melted. You can go whitewater rafting, explore Yellowstone Park or go on a wildlife safari.
May is a great time to come to Jackson Hole and spend a weekend enjoying Elk Fest! Elk Fest is Jackson Hole tradition that is centered around the Boy Scout Elk Antler Auction that has been going on for over 45 years. The Boy Scouts assist the rangers at the National Elk Refugee in collecting the antlers that the herds of elk shed every winter. They then turn around and auction off the antlers as fundraiser for their troop fees and dues. The Antler Auction will be taking place on Saturday, May 19th this year. There are tons of other events that go on during Elk Fest on Saturday including booths, kids activities, a free concert, casino games and silent auctions. On Sunday, May 20th, Jackson Hole has the High Noon Chili Cook-off featuring tons of local and regional contestants. Come watch these great chefs compete and grab a spoon to try out some of the amazing chilis. This annual fun event is great for the whole family and is the perfect way to kick off a weeklong vacation in Jackson Hole.
