2016 World Snow Polo Championships

It’s an incredibly festive time of year in our buzzing resort town, but insert elegant European (and of course American) polo players into the scene, in town for the fourth annual World Snow Polo Championship, and Aspen’s glitz immediately transforms to Old World European elegance (a refreshing addition), and the person partially responsible for making this all happen is Melissa Ganzi.

Ganzi, one of the most accomplished women players in polo, and co-founder of the Aspen Valley Polo Club, played for Flexjet this past weekend, and alongside teammates Jason Crowder and Jesse Bray, defeated the U.S. Polo Association to win the 2016 World Snow Polo Championship.

We sent our photographers, Alex Blanco and Sebaz Dietl to capture the scene. Be sure to tag images on our Instagram and Facebook Feeds!

[su_box title=”Aspen Times”]“We had a good game plan and we stuck to it and we finished strong,” Bray said of the championship match. “This is such a fun tournament to come play. I’m from California, so I’m really cold right here. This is a whole another world for me.”[/su_box]
