Shot ski involves getting an old ski and gluing three, four or five glasses. The flat metal bars attached to the feet of the people who participate in skiing are known as skis. These glasses are placed equidistantly allowing the participants to take a shot together. Shot ski is a pastime event common during the winter. When the weather gets cold, a lot of people cluster at the winter resorts. In order to utilize the old skis, social drinking vessels are made. These vessels enable the people who are afraid to take shots alone, take the shot ski and take the shots up to the last drop together. Every drinker must finish his/her drink otherwise it will spill on his/her face. The following are the features of the shot ski.
A perfect shot ski has messages and beautiful patterns on the surfaces. Generally, when a ski gets old, it becomes unattractive as a result of wear and tear. Rust is also common in the old skis. To restore its previous attractive look, an old ski is painted and decorations made on the surfaces. So as to spread messages of goodwill, messages are written on the lower surfaces of the ski. People’s names are also written on the top side so that a person can identify his/her drink. This feature attracts even the people who have fear of shot skiing.
The glasses must be strongly attached to the ski. The glue and adhesive used to prevent the glasses from coming off the ski. Since shot skiing is common in the cold and wet weather, the glue and adhesive used should be waterproof. Want some strong attachment of your glasses to the ski, use Gorilla glue. Gluing is done after all the other steps of customizing a ski are done. Plenty of time must be allowed in order to ensure the glue attaching the glasses to the ski dries up.
The glasses on the ski are equidistantly attached. In a shot ski, there are three to five glasses. The glasses have equal distances between them so that every person has plenty of drinking space. Customized shot ski to be used by the fat people have bigger distances between the glasses. The shot glasses must also be attached at the center of the ski width.
A spray is used to cover the ski. Once you have done with the preparation of the ski, spraying it with a clear spray is important to prevent liquid from the shot glasses from damaging the paint and patterns. This also avoid the degrading of the ski as a result of rust.
These are the features and the procedure of making a customized shot ski.
