The resort of Crans Montana is really two towns whos centres are a mile apart and both set in a sunny position in the Rhone valley. The sun soaked slopes offer beautiful views with a large and varied piste area. The resort offers some excellent all inclusive packages.
Large and varied pistes
Excellent nursery slopes
Large and varied cross country area
Snow can be affected by the sun later in the season
Bus ride or shuttle to the lifts
The towns lack a bit of atmosphere
Plenty to do off the pistes with swimming pools, ice rink, dog sledding, snow tubing cinema and casino. There are a few après ski bars and venues to visit with The George and Dragon, and Harrys bar recommended.
A great resort for scenery although the villages could not be described as pretty. Good for intermediates and beginners, excellent offers of all inclusive ski packages on all dates except Christmas and New Year.
