Polo is considered the title holder of sports among the elite. In the most luxurious resort area of St. Moritz, Switzerland in 1985, the first snow polo game was inaugurated.
The game is a modified version of the traditional polo pastime. As in a standard match of polo, each team in snow polo is comprised of three participants. However, the ball is bigger and lighter. It is also in crimson red to make it easily visible on the white snow.
In order to give the polo ponies’ better traction, cleats were added to their horseshoes to skip them of having any mishaps of slippage and falling.
Spectators kept warm under heated tents in St. Moritz while witnessing the engaging players on the field. The success of this event quickly turned snow polo into an annual happening in the Swiss resort.
It was apparent that snow polo was not a passing fad and games commenced outside of St. Moritz afterwards. The only destination in the United States presently offering snow polo matches is Aspen, Colorado. It is no secret that celebs that flock to the customary polo competitions in Palm Beach and Santa Barbara would not miss Aspen´s version.
The social agendas in Aspen quickly fill up and tickets are becoming difficult to obtain. Past sightings of snow polo fans include Ivanka Trump, Alexis Bleidel, Heidi Klum, Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas.
