Watching horses thunder across the snowy pitch in the most glamourous sport in the world.

People watching around the field.

Gaining insider access to the best parties around.

Tobogganing head first down the 1.2km long Cresta Ice run.

For ice-cool glamour there is no sporting event more refined than the Cartier Polo World Cup on snow.

the match

Watching from the edge of a vast frozen lake in the heart of St. Moritz, you will rub shoulders with the crème de la crème of society as the best polo players in the world meet for a fiercely contested tournament. Watch the nimble polo ponies fly over the snow and the super-fit players battle out each chukka in the high altitudes of the Swiss Alps.

By night, you'll find yourself mingling with the high and mighty in the zenith of social scenes as you party the night away at the exclusive events laid on during the week. It's no wonder that 20,000 people flock each year to watch and socialise around the occasion.

And if you're living it up for the week, where better to stay than the elegant Badrutts Palace, where you are just as likely to bump into celebrities and royalty as on the lake. Here, equipment hire and lift passes can be arranged if you fancy some snowy action for yourself in one of the world's most challenging ski resorts. If you're not a skier, why not pamper yourself in the luxurious hotel spa, or take the plunge on the famous toboggan Cresta Run.
