Come on Beehive State. We can’t let Colorado win. For a brief, glorious time in late 2017, Park City overcame Utah’s alcohol-related stigma and set the shot ski world record with more than 1,200 participants simultaneously throwing one back using 476 end-to-end skis. Breckenridge—being completely unoriginal, per usual—copied the idea in early 2018 and set their own record with 1,266 participants. Parkites are aiming to retake the throne on Saturday, October 13 at 2 p.m.
Park City Sunrise Rotary Club and High West Distillery are hosting the 3rd annual Shot Ski Event by inviting 1,275 shot takers to Main Street where High West will be filling glasses with their famous Double Rye whiskey. Tickets to the event cost $25 per person, which includes the shot of Double Rye, a souvenir shot glass and a token for a High West speciality drink at one of several after party locations including Wasatch Brew Pub, OP Rockwell, No Name Saloon and O’Shucks. Visit the Shot Ski Event’s website to purchase your tickets. All proceeds from the event will benefit Park City Sunrise Rotary Club’s Grant Program for 20 community organizations. Last year’s edition raised more than $23,000, so take pride in giving to a good cause while simultaneously having a blast and getting a great deal on a couple High West libations.
Help restore Park City’s place atop the shot ski mountain, and help remind Coloradans it’s not just snowfall totals they should be envious of.
