Crans Montana Switzerland

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

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 160km of pistes served by 40 lifts, offers lots of cruising opportunities for advanced intermediates.

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.

With a respectable 140km of piste, there is a wide variety of skiing for intermediates and the fast network of lifts allows piste-bashers to cover a lot of ground. There is also some good off-piste to be had below La Tza or Chetseron.

The Resort

Although now spoken of as one place, Crans and Montana do retain some of their separate identities. Crans is the smarter and more expensive of the two with some excellent designer shopping to be had in the chic boutiques. Montana, which is the older of the two resorts, is less glamorous in style. But has plenty of bars and restaurants that are more modest in price than those found in Crans.

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.
