A third successful snow Polo Tremblant international tournament

A third successful snow Polo Tremblant international tournament

Once again, the snow, the frozen lake, a post-card worthy Mount Tremblant and the Gray Rocks Airport became once more hosts of the prestigious Snow Polo Tremblant tournament. As an international event, the third annual Tremblant competition attracted an audience of nearly two thousand people who had congregated from all over the world to witness the athletic performances of the featured polo players and their horses.

Luxury and real estate Unique event of its kind in Canada, this competition has attracted a fashionable and select crowd as well as curious onlookers since its creation. Many arts and business luminaries can be spotted in the area during the two-day event.

Undeterred by extreme cold weather and ice storms, amateurs and professionals came together as planned on March 3 and 4, with players and their horses delighting the crowd with an exhilarating spectacle. The star of this year’s show was one of the world’s top athletes, the Argentine polo player Ignacio ‘Nacho’ Figueras, an internationally-known model and Ralph Lauren brand ambassador sometimes called the “David Beckham of polo.” Not surprisingly, he led his team to win the tournament, and received the Most Valuable Player trophy for his outstanding performance.

For two days, four teams brilliantly vied for top honours in the championship: Polo Blue by Ralph Lauren, Four Seasons Private Residences, Mackenzie Investments and Holt Renfrew Ogilvy. The tournament ended on March 4 when the Polo Blue by Ralph Lauren team won the title.

Event cofounders Justin Fogarty, Marc Perreault and Herbert Ratsch were delighted with the results of this year’s event. The tournament has become a true institution in three short years. A well-deserved success.
