Winter has arrived in St. Moritz and the ice has finally reached sufficient thickness to safely support the infrastructure of the polo tournament which will take place, as planned, from 27 to 29 January.
The Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz 2023 will thus once again be the protagonist of a fascinating challenge which, thanks to the uniqueness of this sport, will allow professionals and amateurs to play together.
Argentina has a strong tradition of polo dynasties, with families such as the Harriotts, Heguys, Mac Donoughs and Pieres providing some of the best teams. A recent example of this is when Adolfo Cambiaso, the number one polo player in the world, and his 17-year-old son Adolfo “Poroto” Cambiaso won the Argentine Open in Palermo in Buenos Aires.
Looking closer to home, we are very curious to see if the World Polo League Team with captain Melissa Ganzi and her son Grant or the St. Moritz Team with father-son duo McCarthy will also be able to take home the coveted trophy at St Moritz…
We were hopeful up until the last minute that the freezing night temperatures would ensure the lake freezes faster and Mother Nature hasn’t let us down
gleefully says Reto Gaudenzi, founder and CEO of the Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz.
It is extremely gratifying to see that the countless hours of work invested in preparing for the tournament by our team, sponsors, fans and players have paid off. I would like to say a huge thank you to all partners involved for the fantastic cooperation. Now we can look forward and focus on an incredible tournament! And as always, entry to the tournament is free
At the food stalls and bars around the ‘Polo Piazza’ guests have at their disposal a first-class culinary range from Badrutt’s Palace and the Crystal Hotel in cooperation with local partners.
Every year, we see our guests delighted anew by the unique setting on a frozen lake against one of the world’s most stunning mountain backdrops
enthuses Reto Gaudenzi.
St. Moritz is second to none in making such a perfect match of genuine hospitality, luxury and authentic Alpine lifestyle. It is an exhilarating mix of locals, visitors, polo fans, winter sports enthusiasts, and foodies
And, he adds
We are also thrilled to see the demand from sponsors, players, and guests growing every year. It is, above all, a compliment to St. Moritz and the outstanding effort of all partners involved
