Snow polo was first introduced in 1985 at the resort town of St. Moritz, Switzerland. The World Snow Polo Championship is the only snow polo tournament in North America that is sanctioned by the USPA (The United States Polo Association).

It is a modified version of polo, where games are played on a snow-packed arena surrounded by fencing, keeping the ball in play. Teams are comprised of three players, as opposed to four in regulation polo. Play consists of four 7-minute chukkas (periods) and horses (polo ponies) are shod with special cleated shoes to provide better traction. The ball is larger, lighter and bright red to accommodate winter conditions.

The 2012 tournament will consist of four teams who will compete in a two- day single elimination tournament to win the coveted USPA Championship. Team sponsor Ciroc, the premium French vodka is the official beverage for the event as they were in 2011. U.S. Polo Assn. licensed by Jordache, is back on board as the official apparel provider and Team sponsor.
