Escorihuela Gascón y Securitas champions of FIN DEL MUNDO Snow Polo Cup Ushuaia 2011
We are a company which organizes events, especially those related to POLO and SNOWPOLO.
We are located in Ushuaia (the southernmost city in the world), in the South of Argentina, on the shores of the Beagle Channel.
We have a troop of horses, carefully selected and well adapted to the region climate.
The Alpine as well as the cross-country skiing slopes at Tierra Mayor and Cerro Castor Ski Resorts, where we established our SNOWPOLO pitches, are located 30 km from Ushuaia, on the National Route number 3.
Our SNOWPOLO pitches are taken care of, throughout the year, by a specialized ground staff with over 40 years of experience. This began some months before competitive games had taken place, even before the first snowfall and has continued throughout the snow season, using up-to-date machinery and taking into account the temperature variations to archive the correct solidity.
This allows the games to be played safely at a maximum speed, whist maintaining good pitch conditions throughout the season. The pitch dimension is 120mts - 60mts and this allows 3 players in each team. Everything mentioned above means that the best SNOWPOLO can be found at the end of the world!
1st Torneo de Snow Polo, at Ushuaia august 2010
INVICTUS company and Canal Beagle Polo Club's organized the Copa Accord Salud , in southern Argentina
The 1st Torneo de Snow Polo takes place at the Complejo Invernal de Tierra Mayor. After months of preparations, and with many expectations hanging in the air, the 1st Torneo Snow Polo - Copa Accord Salud was a reality.
As from 11 a.m., local time of Saturday, August 7th, the event kicked off at the Valle de Tierra Mayor complex, which is located about 20 kilometres from Ushuaia, in Argentina's most southern province, Tierra del Fuego.
This is a recently-founded club thanks to the will and effort of many polo followers living in the South of Argentina, who are seeking to publicize the sport in this region of the country where, due to the reigning climate, conditions in general are not always favourable for the practise of outdoor sports like polo.
Four teams set to go for title honours, each of them with three players on the field, plus an additional one who will be rotating with his team-mates. Two-chukker matches, with six-minute chukkers. After midday Saturday, the first two matches will have gone ahead, after which the hird- and fourth-place (as from 2 p.m.) and the title (as from 2:30 p.m.) deciders will take place.
One of the players taking part in the event (as part of the Los Cauquenes Resort & Spa line-up) is Canal Beagle Polo Club chairman, Tomás Bertotto, who stated that he and the rest of the members of the club "expect this sport to become well-known in Ushuaia, and also hope that the club to become known to the rest of the world". He also mentioned that the Valle de Tierra Mayor complex "is unsurpassable; it is a vast valley covered with snow, where an adventurous visionary like Captain Gustavo Giró founded the first winter sports centre of the province".
