Description: 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.

If you love ski, this is the place. Sunny, nice temperature (it means that you dont suffer while practice your favorite sport) there is always snow and also snow cannons if you need. There are several restaurants and still have the small nice atmosphere of a small village.

Excellent ski centre, mostly good red runs with a few blacks and blues. Consistently good skiing from top to bottom. All runs face south which is excellent for January to mid February. Well linked resort with mainly chairs and bubbles which allow easy access back to village if weather/ legs deteriorate. 3 days is enough to get round it all... More

Let me tell you first that buses in the area are free to all. You just have to jump in and it takes you along the city and up to the plaza of the cable-way station. Crans-Montana is widely sought for its fabulous sky mountains. The view from the top is breath-taking. The funicular (cable-car) stops half-way up and you... More

Lovely old area that is a very European destination which we'd hoped to get. New years eve was great with amazing fireworks. Prices are ridiculous as they are in Switzerland but it has a very European feel unlike Verbier which seems to be mainly British. Lots of shops and galleries and things for non-skiers of which I am one. Family... More

I wnated to take my Family skiing for a day in Crnas Montana. Well we did and the ski area for beginners at the Golf was just fine and the Price very reasonable. CHF 10.00 per Person for 3 beginners lifts is not expensive and the staff at these lifts were nice and friendly. The Restaurant provided at this beginners... More

Good shopping opportunities, nice place to stay, ski lift is easily accessible and good to go up even when there is no snow. Accommodation was good and I really enjoy walking around the village.

We were here for three nights in September. The weather was sunny for two days one day it rained which could have been a reason for the sour moods of some of the staff in the businesses we checked out. Big, spread out resort, we were there for mountain biking, they have a park with two trails that have potential,... More
