This week is a busy one in the mountains outside Zurich. If you fancy heading out of town there are two big international events on this week.
St.Moritz Polo World Cup on Snow 24th – 27th January
Why not make the journey to St Moritz to experience the glamour and excitement of a world class polo tournament? From the 24th – 27th January there will be speed, excitement and colour on the frozen lake in St Moritz for the “St. Moritz Polo World Cup on Snow”. This event is the world’s most prestigious Winter polo tournament – so if you’ve not been to one before, this is a great one to experience.
The highlight of the tournament is the final taking place on Sunday 27th January after four teams have battled it out for the coveted World Cup trophy. Since the Snow Polo Tournament in Klosters was cancelled this year you may like to take the scenic journey from Zurich to St Moritz for this spectacular event. Watching polo on a frozen lake, 1,800 metres above sea level, surrounded by snow capped mountains in a fabulous ski resort is a truly unique experience. For more information read here.
