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.

The city center can be somewhat crowded but it is a great place to ski at and for long walks. We were a whole group of friends and enjoyedour stay there. Restaurants are however overpriced and do not offer the best quality.

We like ski in Crans-Montana. Great mountains and slops for all levels. Good sci school for kids and really we could see result: our 5 years old daughter started skiing and use lifts.

Been here many a time it is lovely, The skiing is rather easy of hard no middle ground, many watering holes on the piste if you want to stop for a vin chaud. Many good restaurants but like most places in Switzerland very expensive. Ski pass for day is 63 francs...

The whole place is a jewel, both for skiers and non skiers. Two golf courses add a bit of sporting activities to the slopes, and there is a high Street where you can find top named shops like in a European capital. Nice restaurants of all nationalities, nice walks in the woods, elegant cafès and bars to enjoy the panorama.

Great and well prepared slopes in an system that gives you a fantastic view over the sorrounding valley and mountains. Good variety with lots of lifts and cabins. Specifically on the Montana side of system. Very suitable for us medium skiers over 65!

A nice ski field that doesn't live up to its reputation. While the pistes are suited to beginners and families the installations don't have the diversity and what's expected of a modern ski domain. Bit of a let down!

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.

We were looking for a friendly skiing resort, not too over priced. Excellent facilities for intermediates and beginners. Worth a visit

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
