More Than 1,000 People A Mile Long Breaks Breckenridge’s Mark
Okay now this is COOL!
And not just because it took place in a cool place, a ski resort town.
It’s the World’s Longest Ski Shot and it took place on Saturday, Oct. 13, in Park City, Utah.
First of all, how did I miss such a thing? Secondly, it involved taking skis with holes bored in them to hold shot glasses, all bolted together and laid town in two rows like train tracks all the way down Main Street in Park City.
Shot glasses were put in those holes and filled with High West Whiskey. I have a feeling afterward, people had a few more shots at the High West Saloon after the event.
A total of 1,275 people participated and all took a shot as they all raised the skis to their mouths at the same time. There were 508 skis used and it stretched for 2,570 feet along Main Street. That’s more than a mile long.
It set the world record for the longest shot using skis. The previous record was set in January 2018 in Breckenridge, which had 1,266 participants and used 422 skis end-to-end.
“We are so grateful for the enthusiasm of the Park City community and our partnership with High West Distillery who made this a record-setting day for us,” said Park City Sunrise Rotary Club member Connie Nelson. “Not only did we surpass Breckenridge’s shot ski record, we exceeded our fundraising goal and raised $29,475, the most in event history.”
This was the third annual Shot Ski Event, hosted by Park City Sunrise Rotary Club and High West Distillery,
Topping last year’s total of $23,253.19, all proceeds will benefit Park City Sunrise Rotary Club’s Grant Program for 20 community organizations.
