Aspen is the ultimate winter getaway, and one never needs an excuse to visit—but if you’re looking for one, next month’s World Snow Polo Championship is the perfect opportunity.

And if you book your trip with us now, you’ll receive two complimentary VIP tickets to Sunday’s Championship match! (valued at $500/each)

Under the bright Colorado sun, you can get up close and personal with some of the world’s best polo players as well as VIP guests at this thrilling event. The action on the snow is unbeatable, with a smaller field and larger, lighter ball contributing to fast-paced chukkers that will leave you breathless (not to mention the altitude!).

Meeting St. Regis Connoisseur Nacho Figueras at last year’s tournament!

Last year, the U.S. Polo Association came out on top at the tournament, with nine goaler Nic Roldan leading the charge. But the competition was fierce, and other top players like Nacho Figueras and Tommy Biddle contributed to the tournament’s crowd-pleasing excitement. The action-packed matches combined with the intimacy of the event (spectators in the VIP tent were literally right on the edge of the field, separated from the players only by the fence that helps keep the ball in play) made this a truly unforgettable experience.

If you join us this year, you can get in on all the excitement. Besides getting the chance to meet top players, you could very well catch a glimpse of celebrity guests like Mariah Carey, who made an appearance last year with her fiancé. Or, considering the press that will be in attendance, you might just end up in the pages of Vogue or Town & Country yourself.

Enjoy All That Aspen Has to Offer

In between matches, take a break from the excitement in the St. Regis VIP tent, where you’ll be treated to brunch, a Bloody Mary bar, and afternoon tea field side. Truly live the après experience by relaxing in this exclusive atmosphere and recapping the action.

After the final match has ended for the day, enjoy a gourmet dinner at the Chef’s Club before enjoying the night life that Aspen has to offer—or simply retiring to your luxurious suite accommodations. No one would blame you, after so much excitement on the polo field! Complete your relaxation by visiting the Remède Spa at St. Regis for a massage or a signature oxygen facial (one of our favorite things to do in Aspen!).

And don’t forget to take advantage of Aspen’s natural beauty, from some of the highest-quality ski slopes in the world to peaceful snowshoe trails. With so much to experience, you’ll be planning your return next winter well before you leave the mountains.

Book one of our St. Regis polo packages to have the ultimate VIP experience at the World Snow Polo Championship this December. For a limited time, when you book your trip with Journeys, you’ll get two complimentary VIP tickets to Sunday’s Championship match. Plus, the first four couples to book the Polo Aficionado Experience will get a personal meet and greet with the St. Regis Connoisseur Nacho Figueras and the rest of the team. Don’t miss this thrilling winter getaway!
