Every year the Polo on Snow event and the White Turf horse racing event (an international horse racing event held every year since 1907), are held on the frozen lake in St. Moritz Switzerland. Guests from all over the world attend these first-class exciting events.
These spectacular events take place in the winter sunshine on the frozen lake among the beautiful snow-capped mountains of St. Moritz. The champagne and delicious gourmet foods are plentiful for the rich, the beautiful, and the famous.
And race horses and their owners, trainers, and jockeys from all over the world meet up as well. It is an unmissable date on the calendar for local people. Sponsors, as well as the municipality of St. Moritz, and the local tourist board have supported this event for decades.
