2016 World Snow Polo Championships
December 16, 2016
At the Aspen World Snow Polo Championship, our Owners can enjoy exclusive front-row seats to watch the exciting equestrian winter sport from our VIP heated tent.
In addition to Flexjet’s sponsorship of the December tournament, we also sponsor the Flexjet polo team, which also won the Carbondale Classic. Fans will get to enjoy a premium view of the field in Flexjet’s heated VIP tent – complete with warm and specialty beverages and a live DJ for entertainment.
Flexjet has been a proud sponsor of the sponsorship of the Aspen World Snow Polo Championship since 2014.
The tournament is the only one of its kind in North America and draws a high profile audience of polo fans to idyllic Aspen, Colorado to watch some of the world’s best players.
Aspen is one of the locales that ranks in Flexjet Owners’ top 10 most favored destinations in both summer and winter. Snow polo, first played in 1985 in St. Moritz, Switzerland, is a variant on the more familiar turf version of the sport that is played seasonally in U.S. venues such as Aspen, Florida and Long Island. The winter version of the game is adapted to snowy conditions through such measures as a smaller field, three-player teams, fences to keep the ball in play, unique cleated horseshoes for better traction and a larger, lighter ball painted red to contrast with the snow.
In addition to Aspen, snow polo is played in other globally renowned winter sports locations. Such locales include St. Moritz, Switzerland; Bariloche, Argentina; and Cortina, Italy.
