Perched on a sunny high plateau in the heart of the Alps, Crans-Montana...

Perched on a sunny high plateau in the heart of the Alps, Crans-Montana offers visitors a magnificent panorama of 200 km over the Alps.

These extraordinary surroundings serve as a backdrop to four golf courses including the mythical Severiano Ballesteros. During winter, the 140 km ski area and its famous "national piste" will satisfy any ski or snowboard fan.

Is only a 20 minutes ride by funiculaire, this place is beautiful on its own. Lots of eateries, there is one casino and the view is spectacular. A few nights trip to Crans will be an ideal vacation for those visiting Switzerland.

One of the best ski villages in Europe. It is not exactly easy to get to but the powder on the slopes was excellent even in late March. There are plenty of good restaurants to go to here as well.

Crans Montana is a ski area in the Wallis (Valais in French) in the south west of Switzerland. The ski area is mostly intermediate, nice in the early winter when its southerly aspect catches the sun. But the mountain lift company is rather mercenary about refunds so beware about buying a ticket and then not being able to ski.

Excellent town in the middle of the swiss mountains, great place for skiing/snowboarding, and playing golf. Make sure you bring your credit card! Restaurants are about four times more expensive than in Italy. Great place for hiking down/up the mountains too.

This gem of a Swiss village is great in all seasons. Whether you Golf , Ski , Play Tennis or Horseback ride you can do it here. The altitude is rather low and it has mostly sunny days . The ultimate place to shop in the alps ( I almost opened a Botique in the Village here) easy to get... More
