    Night Turf 2017, St. Moritz

    Night Turf is a spectacular horse racing tournament, which takes place ON THE FROZEN LAKE OF ST. MORITZ AFTER SUNSET.

    The tournament has been taking place for the 3rd time this year. While White Turf is well-known around the world for its long 110-years history of horse racing on the frozen lake of St. Moritz, Night Turf is a new tradition of horse racing which takes place on the frozen lake after sunset.

    Besides thrilling competitions, guests enjoyed delicious cuisine, nice music and outstanding light-show in the night sky of St. Moritz.

    Good to know:

    • Date: Friday, 24th of February 2017;
    • Location: on the frozen lake of St. Moritz;
    • Tickets: free admission to the frozen lake, including access to the grandstand seats;

    Program, Night Turf 2017:

    • 14:30 Opening of the tent village on the frozen lake St. Moritz

    Night Turf was not really “night” because I expected to see horse race at night, but it was still spectacular competition and interesting experience.

    Moreover, Snow Polo World Cup also takes place on the frozen lake of St. Moritz every winter. The highlights of the tournament you may check in the article -> SNOW POLO WORLD CUP ST.MORITZ 2017

    If you are planning a trip for the next White Turf, I recommend to check the dates for the Night Turf as well. You will find that in one of the weekends these two races will have only a day between each other. It’s very convenient to spend an amazing weekend in St. Moritz and enjoy two extraordinary and unique horse races on the frozen lake.
