The Piaget World Snow Polo Championships (yes, it's a real thing) kicked off today at Wagner Park in Aspen with an exhibition match followed by the diamond-studded finale on Friday. Despite controversy over whether or not Wagner Park was the best location for the event (the local blog Aspen Spin fears turf damage), the snow is in, the fences are up, and the horses are ready. Curbed Ski will be at the fancy schmancy Friday match, counting the number of fur coats and trying to catch a photo with the David Beckham of polo, Nacho Figueras, who spent the morning skiing Aspen Mountain with his girlfriend. Aspenites, drop us a line if you see anything jaw-dropping, hilarious, or just plain stupid.
