Resort details

Crans Montana


One of the best sunshine records in Switzerland and incredible views, from Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn.

A little to the east of Verbier and on the north side of the Rhone valley, Crans-Montana (1,500m) can be reached by funicular from Sierre in the valley, or via one of two hairpin bend-packed roads up through the vineyards. Originally two resorts that have now effectively sprawled into one, Crans-Montana is one of Switzerland’s largest alpine resorts and is situated on a broad south-facing plateau. It has one of the best sunshine records in the country, not to mention some of the most breathtaking panoramic views, stretching from Mont Blanc in the west to the Matterhorn in the east, to be found anywhere in the Alps.

Although now spoken of as one place, Crans and Montana do to some extent retain their separate identities. Crans, where hotel construction was begun in 1912, is the smarter and more expensive of the two. There is some excellent designer shopping to be had in the chic boutiques here and there.

By contrast Montana, which is the older of the two resorts, is rather less glamorous in style, but it is nevertheless a lively place with plenty of bars and restaurants that are on the whole more modest in price than those found in Crans.

The Ski Area

Crans-Montana (1,500m) is one of Switzerland’s largest alpine resorts and is situated on a broad south-facing plateau. The ski area, which has 140km of pistes served by 40 lifts, offers lots of cruising opportunities for advanced intermediates. There is also some good off-piste to be had below La Tza or Chetseron.

Crans-Montana's skiing also goes up to a height of 3,000m on the Plaine Morte glacier and the 11km run down from Plaine Morte is a long, steep-ish red that is one of the most dramatic in the Alps.

The Resort

Crans-Montana has 80 restaurants to choose from, not to mention a further 15 cafes and bars. Notable establishments include Le Pavillon which does an excellent fondue chinoise (meat fondue cooked in stock, not fat), and L’Auberge de la Diligence which serves both Swiss and Lebanese food. After dark, bars include La Grange in Montana and the George & Dragon in Crans. The best of the discos is L’Absolut Club in Crans.
