Crans-Montana Villages

Hint

Intro

The two neighboring resorts of Crans and Montana are situated at an altitude of 1500 m on a sun-drenched plateau high above the Rhone Valley. Together they form one of the biggest holiday destinations in the Valais.

These twin towns have much to offer, including an impressive view of the chain of mountain peaks from the Matterhorn to Mont Blanc and a particularly wide programme of activities all year round.

Idyllic mountain village or alpine town? Crans-Montana embodies both and combines all the comforts of a modern holiday resort with an expansive natural landscape and panoramic views of the Valais Alps. The modern side of Crans-Montana offers the most extensive alpine shopping for miles around. It also boasts a renowned cultural and congress centre; and a wide range of accommodation. As a venue for major sporting events, and with a reputation as a golfing Mecca, Crans-Montana draws visitors from all over the world.

Commune with nature in this family-friendly resort, where you can enjoy five swimming lakes; walks through aromatic mountain forests along an extensive network of footpaths; and cosy fondue evenings in rustic inns.

Winter

The ski slopes stretch from the high plateau up to the Plaine Morte Glacier at 3000 m. Directly beyond the edge of the forest the pistes are broad and open, ideal for beginners and deep-snow skiers. Advanced skiers will take the chairlift to La Toula to find a really challenging descent. Particularly popular are the broad carving pistes and the valley descent down the Piste Nationale which, at 12 km, is the longest in the region.

In Winter the golf courses become a paradise for cross-country skiers and hikers. In addition to classic cross-country ski trails, there is also an extra piste especially for skaters.

Summer

In addition to well-known sports like hiking, tennis and squash, Crans-Montana has facilities for canyoning, mountain climbing, water skiing and paragliding. The attractive skiing areas of the Plaine Morte glacier plateau are also ideal for summer hiking. Particular summer favourites are the five swimming lakes right next to the village.

Crans-Montana has a long golfing tradition. The 18-hole Severiano Ballesteros Golf Course with its breath-taking views is situated on the high plateau of Crans. The international elite meet here every year for golfing tournaments.

Family

Idyllic mountain village or modern, high-altitude town? Crans-Montana is both, and combines all the amenities of a lively resort with boundless nature and sweeping views of the Valais Alps. Five idyllic swimming lakes, fragrant mountain forests and an extensive network of footpaths are among the welcoming resort’s natural attractions.

Again and again the whistling of the marmot can be heard: You can visit “Bibi”, the mascot, in the exciting Fun Park, which always has great vacations ideas. Excursions in the adventure forest, mini golf, treasure hunts, games at the mountain beach and canoeing. Snow tubing, sledding, and trampoline jumping are on the program in the winter months.

  • It is said that one night in December, on the mountainside above Crans-Montana, a shepherd who had nothing except his animals and the stars for company, set out to look for his dear ewe, Blanche. After many hours of struggle, braving the snow, the freezing wind and the dark night, he was dazzled by a bright light. Behind it, a strange figure that had come from the sky... As soon as night falls, be guided by the enchanting spirit of the lantern path. This magical walk, which is freely accessible on the Jack Nicklaus golf course, will make you feel like a child again. At the end of the path, a hamlet of huts and a box which is ready to receive the dreams that you hold closest to your heart, as you dive into the universe of the shepherd.
