The highlight of the four-day tournament, which saw heavy snow fall on polo field on the frozen Lake St. Moritz, was this Sunday’s final.

The match saw Cartier secure the victory in the sixth chukka, besting Nacho Figueras’ Team Ralph Lauren 2:1 thanks to standout performances by Jonathan Munro Ford (patron), Max Charlton, Chris Hyde and Hissam Ali Hyder. Team BMW claimed third place, with fourth place going to Team Deutsche Bank.
