Breckenridge Breaks Record For World's Longest Ski Shot With 1,350 People

By

Since around 2013, the towns of Breckenridge and Park City have been in a heated battle towards earning and holding the the world’s longest ski shot. According to Men’s Journal, Breckenridge first claimed the record in 2013, building a 313-foot long ski shot with 113 people behind the glasses. Since then, the record has tossed back and forth, and, last we recorded, Park City took the record in 2018 with 1,275 people putting down shots behind the ski.

For the 59th annual Ullr Fest in Breckenridge, the folks behind Breckenridge Distillery once again sought to take the record. 468 connected skis, 1,350 people, and 2,281.5 ounces of Breckenridge Distillery’s Broncos Bourbon Blend (about 143 bottles) later and the town of Breckenridge holds the record again.

“It’s one of our town’s quirkiest and wackiest events. It brings out long-time locals and out-of-towners, all wearing Ullr horns and dressed in fur or ‘80’s costumes. It’s pretty fun.” – Breckenridge Distillery’s Jessie Unruh

While this may just seem like peak tomfoolery and one of the most epic après events, it’s all done for a good cause. Proceeds from the event go towards the Breckenridge Mountain Rotary Club and other non-profits, allowing the 1,350 people involved to drink for a good cause, all while making après ski history.
