Audi's team of aces beat out the Beluga Vodka squad from Russia to capture the World Snow Polo Championship in Aspen two weeks ago after a bitter cold battle. The sport was first introduced in 1985 at the resort town of St. Moritz, Switzerland. Though similar to arena polo, matches are played on a snow-packed arena surrounded by fencing keeping the ball in play. Horses are shod with special cleated shoes providing better traction, the ball is larger, lighter and a resilient red offering better visibility. What of the spectators? They, along with celebrities, gather under heated tents while they enjoy the action on the field.
