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

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
