Welcome to Crans-Montana Ski Resort

Welcome to the oh-so-chic ski resort of Crans-Montana in Switzerland. Your first-class ticket to skiing paradise begins with spectacular views over the Rhône Valley, the Matterhorn and Mont Blanc. Seasoned skiers swoosh down cruisey blues and reds. And thrill-seekers put their skills to the test down steely blacks and off-piste routes. Glide past frozen lakes on the dazzling cross-country course. Or head to 'Snow Island' to learn the basics. Phew! Need a break after all of that? Meet up with the clan at a swanky mountain hut, relax on the sun terrace, and enjoy a glass of fizz. Proscht!

Best time to ski in Crans-Montana

If bluebird days are high on your wishlist, you're in luck. South-facing Crans-Montana enjoys over 300 days of glorious sunshine a year. Soak up those rays! This doesn't mean the snow suffers, though. With altitudes soaring up to 3000m and snow-making cannons on standby, coverage is pretty decent throughout the season. That said, January and February tend to be the snowiest months. Highlights in the Crans-Montana events calendar include the Etoile Bella Lui, an enchanting light festival in December, and the Women's FIS Ski World Cup in February.

Things to do in Crans-Montana

Shop til you drop! From Prada to Hermès, fashionistas will ascend to retail heaven in the designer boutiques of Crans. The culinary scene is pretty fancy too. For Michelin-star dining, book a table at L'Ours - the 8-course tasting menu is to die for! Elsewhere, expect a wide range of international culinary delights. Book yourself into one of the many luxury hotel spas for a moment of zen. Or, for something more upbeat, enjoy a magical ride on a husky dog sleigh ride through snowy alpine forests. Mush!
