    For the lake to be ready for the tournament, the ice thickness must exceed 27 cm – once this thickness has been reached, the ice is tested by a heavy, 7,700 kg snow-groomer equipped with floating devices, after which the ice is given the green light for the construction work to commence. The ice in regularly checked throughout the construction phase, using ground-penetrating radar. Six teams of the highest calibre will compete in the world’s most exclusive high-goal polo tournament on snow.

    Unique horseshoes for the main superstars of the tournament

    Around 120 polo ponies arrived from around Europe a couple of weeks before the event, giving them time to adapt to the high altitude and get acquainted with the snow. For that reason, they started with walks at first, moving on to gentle training sessions. The ponies also got special horseshoes with rubber tubing to funnel the snow out of the back of the shoe and studs to add traction, ensuring that ponies have a perfect grip during the matches on the hard-pressed snow.

    We hope you got inspired by this beautiful and exciting tournament. If so, be sure to make a note for your calendar of The 39th Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz on 26, 27 and 28 January 2024! And stay tuned to MonAme Magazine for all details!
