  /  Photography   /  Photography Highlights from the Snow Polo World Cup in St. Moritz

Icy winters, breath-taking landscapes, and a photographer’s dream – that’s what I think of when I hear of the Snow Polo World Cup. This ski resort town in the Swiss Alps is already a popular tourist destination, but it became even more popular during the 2022 Snow Polo World Cup that happened for the first time in thirty-seven years.


If you’re a fan of photography, travel, people, food, horses, or polo (or all six!), then this is a story you won’t want to miss.

I had the privilege of photographing the most prestigious sporting event, and the pictures did not disappoint. The view – snow-covered mountains jutting up behind a deep blue lake – is one that I will not soon forget.

When the Snow Polo St Moritz took place, I was eager to meet the fans and players and watch Snow Polo take off. This unique event is held on the frozen lake of St. Moritz near the beautiful resort town of St. Moritz, Switzerland, so you can imagine the stunning backdrop I had for my photographs.

Players and spectators alike enjoyed the stunning alpine scenery while watching some of the world’s best polo players compete. 

The snow polo game is an exciting spectacle with horses galloping through deep snow, players skillfully maneuvering their mallets while up on top of the horses, and the crowd cheering on from all around.

As one of the photographers capturing the event, it was a magical experience with the snow-covered mountains as my backdrop for the pictures. I had to be careful with my shutter speed to capture the players and horses in action, but it turned out well after a few adjustments.

Also, since there was so much snow everywhere, I adjusted my exposure accordingly so that the pictures didn’t turn out too bright or too dark.

I feel fortunate to share these beautiful pictures I took on the blog for you to experience.

While editing, the determination yet immense joy on the player’s faces brought me back to this special day at the Snow Polo World Cup.

Mark your calendars today if you’re interested in attending the Snow Polo St. Moritz World Cup next year. Prepare to participate in one of the most exciting sporting events happening around Europe next winter season. Who knows, maybe I’ll have the pleasure of photographing you in the stands.

This was a great way to start my year, and it was an exciting spectacle with the snow-covered mountains as my backdrop. It’s always an honor to capture such moments like this Snow Polo World Cup. This event is unique because of how much fun we had together on location at these games.

It was wonderful seeing so many people come out that day to watch. From families cheering on their favorite team to children playing in the snow nearby, us photographers snapping photos or just hanging out by our side enjoying everything they saw before them without any worries about what tomorrow might bring. The beautiful scenery and friendly atmosphere made for some incredible images.

I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I enjoyed photographing the event.

I’m already excited for next year’s Snow Polo World Cup!
