Team Cartier took the Snow Polo World Cup 2017. The final played out against the Badrutt’s Palace Hotel team with a score of 7-4 for Cartier. The runner-up match saw Perrier-Jouet go head-to-head with Team Maserati with a respective score of 5-4. Over 15,000 guests were in attendance over the weekend to take in outstanding polo, fine dining, live entertainment and Swiss hospitality all on a very frozen Lake St. Moritz.
This year Insignia was in attendance for this spectacular event. Annually it sees top players and their ponies play several matches on ice. Hosted on Lake St. Moritz a stone’s throw from the world-famous Badrutt’s Palace, the Snow Polo World Cup welcomed Cartier, Badrutt’s Palace, Perrier-Jouet and Maserati to the ice to battle one another for the top honour.
From a hospitality perspective, VIP guests were treated to the gastronomic genius of star chef Reto Mathis, unlimited Perrier-Joust champagne and a prime seat in the grandstands. Perrier-Jouet Chukker Club ticket holders received a reserved seat in the grand stands, a glass of Perrier-Jouet, a warm blanket and canapés. Between live music, this thrilling sport and sponsor tents offering a variety of winter-appropriate activities, the Snow Polo World Cup is delighted to have spectators of all ages.
Saturday night has traditionally been called Snow Polo Night at Badrutt’s Palace. The theme this year was “Baku-Mortiz-Night” and welcomed the nation of Azerbaijan. With live music from the eclectic locale and fine regional cuisine served to guests, the unforgettable evening celebrated the founding of polo by Azerbaijan over 3,000 years ago.
St. Moritz founded this unique form of polo in 1985. For over 30 years this annual event has brought the world’s glitterati to the enchanting Engadin valley. The epitome of the good life, St. Moritz graciously welcomes guests to this magnificent setting for the 2018 installment of this memorable Cup.
