Event Details

About 100 years ago, a couple of enterprising sports enthusiasts invented a brand new equestrian pastime, which in 1923 – five years before the first Winter Olympics were held in St. Moritz: the sport of skijoring.

However, although imitated and adapted in many alpine countries, skijoring in its original form has only established itself in the place where it originated, the Engadine valley in Switzerland. Nowhere else in the world do thoroughbred horses regularly compete without riders on their backs but instead with skiers in tow.

With the years White Turf has turned into a unique, exclusive, top-class event with exciting horse-racing, gourmet catering, lively music and inspiring art exhibitions, all taking place in winter sunshine on the frozen lake among the stunningly beautiful, snow-capped mountains of St Moritz. Race-horse owners, trainers and jockeys from all over the world meet up and compete to live up to the pioneer spirit of 1923. It is thanks to the sponsors as well as the municipality of St Moritz and the local tourist board, who have been supporting White Turf for decades, to make this top-class race-meeting possible.

BMW has been a loyal White Turf partner for years. The BMW VIP tent located at the rim of the race track allows the BMW guests to enjoy an unforgettable moment.

Our fellow Booth alumna Stéphanie Borge, '12 (EXP-17) who joined the BMW group in September 2016, would like to extend an invitation to attend the event on Sunday February 19. (Sunday 12 and 26 February are already fully booked).

Nevertheless 20 tickets remain available for Sunday February 19. First come first served basis.
