60th Ullr Fest Anniversary

Ullr Fest, is days away and we are polishing up our horns and preparing our Nordic woolens! The annual gathering to pay tribute to the Norse god of snow is also a competition for the World Record on December 7th, 2023.

Park City, who hosted its 7th annual Park City Sunrise Shot Ski event in Utah, October 2023 gathered over 1,340 people gathered on Main Street and hoisted a 2,900-foot-long shotski in unison. The shotski was constructed from 468 skis that were attached to be one another crafting one consecutive ski. It is now our turn to beat the record and you better believe it will happen!

The Breckenridge Distillery and the Breckenridge Mountain Rotary have banded together in the quest to defend the title of World Record attempt for longest Shot Ski® at our annual Breckenridge Ullr Fest. They are looking for 1,300+ people so grab your friends (21+) and sign up. Register today and join in, then stay for all of the other festivities and fun.
