ABOUT SNOW POLO
Snow polo—a modified version of regular polo—was officially introduced in 1985 in St. Moritz, Switzerland, but it’s also quite popular in Aspen, Colorado. In fact, in 2012, the Roaring Fork Valley was home to the 13th annual USPA World Snow Polo Championship, the only snow polo tournament sanctioned by the United States Polo Association.
