On February 29th, 2016 the Snow Polo Tremblant International took place in spite of adverse weather conditions. More than 3000 people, including 400 VIPs and sponsors, attended the matches.
World-class polo players put on an exciting show that enabled the local community to discover this noble sport on the field built at the Mont-Tremblant airport (Gray Rocks). A dozen riders on four teams vied for the tournament’s top honours.
The changing weather conditions increased the difficulty level of the competition. After two days of tournament, Team Mackenzie Investments was awarded third place as Destination Mont-Tremblant was second. The final ended in a draw 3-3 between Team Holt Renfrew Ogilvy and Team Polo Blue, rarity in snow polo.
The Most Valuable Player trophy, a presentation of Polo Blue by Ralph Lauren, was awarded to Christopher Mackenzie, Team Polo Blue, who demonstrated the highest skills during the tournament and an extraordinary sportsmanship.
“Some of the players were competing in a snow polo tournament for the first time. The atmosphere was incredible! Many riders confirmed their interest in coming back next year for the third edition, which will take place March 2 to 4, 2017,” said Justin Fogarty, co-founder and captain of Team Holt Renfrew Ogilvy 2016.
