Polo Masters, Courchevel, 29 January – 1 February 2015

Overview

At 2700m altitude it is the highest snow polo tournament in the world, played on horses that are specially trained to compete on snow.

If you are lucky enough to be heading out to Courchevel this January, you may get the chance to watch a spot of polo on the snow. The BMW Polo Masters Tour will be returning for its 6th edition in January 2015 and it really is quite a spectacle.

Polo on snow is played with smaller teams than normal, with only 3 players on each side. You may think that the ball on snow would be too difficult for players to spot, but this is rectified by using a larger orange ball.

To the uninitiated, you would probably think that the sport lacks the skill and conviction of its grass counterpart, but let me tell you, it is incredibly majestic and makes for a superb show. The action is fast paced and highly technical – the ball is never offside and always stays in the game.

Highly skilled and very fast, the best Argentinian, French and European players will be split into 6 teams to face each other on a specially created pitch on the Altiport site.

Enjoy three days of matches and entertainment where teams from all over the world compete in this exclusive sport.Of course, it will be a very glitzy affair so expect plenty of champagne, foie gras and fur trimmed outfits.
