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.

It my favorite resort either in Winter or Summer. It has a special features with its ski areas. I have enjoyed watching this time the World Ski cup. But this resort in Summer is completely different. It is really beautiful to walk around the lakes or clim up the mountain.

I don't know this place in summer, just went skiing there a couple of times. I wish the slopes would offer more variety, the lifts were a bit more advanced, but that set aside, there are lovely restaurants up on the slopes offering amazing views and the place also offers a good choice of places to have delicious dinners.

Beautiful south facing setting. Veeeeeery expensive , without old fashioned charm. Great but limited walks in summer. Dog friendly, a bit less for teenagers

Until fairly recently Crans and Montana were 2 separate Villages placed like a dumbbell. Crans snob & Italian and Montana Paysan ( = compliment ). We are for Montana, particularly when the major work in the centre is finished, including an escalator up to the lift station. Now it's impossible to find anything anywhere since any address is "Crans-Montana" Bureaucrats... More
