At a neighbouring resort to Davos, other members of the global elite enjoyed a luxurious snow polo tournament.
For those of you not familiar with the sport, winter polo involves eight teams of three horses and riders each — instead of the usual four. The horses wear flat shoes with studs to help them tread the snow better. Riders throw mallets to hit a ball between goalposts shaped like over-sized champagne bottles.
The event sounds quite luxurious according to descriptions from Bloomberg’s Leigh Baldwin. Attendees listened to Duran Duran performing inside a nightclub made from shipping containers and snow; and feasted on roast saddle of veal with morel mushroom mousse and whiskey-infused hot chocolate.
Meanwhile over at Davos, soldiers placed barbed wire to keep protesters from the presidents and bankers who were “re-thinking capitalism.”
And here’s a picture of British personality Katie Price competing in the tourney:
