Venture to the Swiss Alps and discover Crans-Montana, a ski resort that combines charming Swiss hospitality with some of the best views in Europe.
Fresh mountain air, gleaming white pistes and charming hospitality await in the ski resort of Crans-Montana, located in the canton of Valais in the Swiss Alps.
Simply put, Crans-Montana offers breathtaking views from every angle from the Matterhorn to the Mont Blanc in France. It is also one of only two resorts in Switzerland with the "Family Destinations" label and skiers of every level will find plenty to keep them amused. The resort is popular with Italian and Swiss skiers, along with the Brits.
The resort is divided into four adapted areas: the family area, the fun area, the glacier area and the nature area. The glacier is the highest point for pisted skiing, at around 2927m. Crans-Montana also has the second biggest snowpark in Switzerland and whilst it can look terrifying to the spectator, there were plenty of winter sports enthusiasts pulling off some impressive tricks.
When a ski area is one of the world’s sunniest and has a skiable glacier to boot, the season sees some incredible mountain conditions. Crans-Montana’s top point is at a mighty 3000m, where the Plaine-Morte glacier covers a whacking great 10 square kilometres. A fabulous red run snakes down to Les Violettes at 2250m – but before you ski it, the ‘Imperial Crown’ of surrounding 4000m summits are well worth a gawp at.
Though famed for its sunny disposition, the top half of the area is high enough to hold onto the white stuff all winter, with the rest of the slopes getting a discrete top up via 200+ snow cannons.
