Every hero needs a villain. True virtue shines brightest in the face of unadulterated wickedness and all that. Superman had Lex Luthor. Luke had Vader. Park City has Breckenridge. The high-elevation Colorado strip mall masquerading as a ski town usurped the shot ski world record from Park City in January 2019, but under the direction of the local distilling heroes at High West and the Park City Sunrise Rotary Club, Parkites are looking to reclaim their place atop the throne on Saturday, October 12 at 2 p.m.
In 2018, Park City set the bar by lining up 1,275 people to tip it back with a 2,570-foot long shot ski down Main Street. Breckenridge may have upped the ante ever so slightly with 1,299 shot ski drinkers of their own, but the Park City is looking to set the number even higher with 1,310 participants and 2,610 feet of shot ski.
Not content with merely crushing the spirit of our counterparts in Colorado, the organizers of the Shot Ski World Record Attempt aim to raise $40,000 for the Sunrise Rotary Club’s community grant program. $25 gets you a shot at glory along the massive shot ski, a token for a High West specialty cocktail at one of several after-party locations and a clear conscience knowing your money went towards bettering the community with your affinity for booze.
