Park City Reclaims Shot Ski World Record

Park City has retaken the throne. 1,275 Parkites flooded Main Street to throw one back on 2,570 feet of shot ski, reclaiming the shot ski world record on October 13 from a derivative Colorado ski town. Eat it Breckenridge! The libation of choice for demoting that glorified I-70 rest stop down the ski town power rankings was none other than local distillery High West’s Double Rye Whiskey.

508 skis and a whole lot of glory.

The Park City Sunrise Rotary Club commissioned the world record drinking apparatus comprised of 508 skis for the town’s third annual Shot Ski Event. In addition to staking Park City’s claim atop the mountain, the event raised $29,475 for community organizations in the Rotary Club’s Grant Program.

Breckenridge will certainly try to reclaim the title later this winter, so it’s up to all of us here in Utah to remain vigilant when it’s time to defend our crown. Stay thirsty, Park City.
