Have been to Crans-Montana one day. Although the resort certainly is not bad, there was nothing that gave more flavor than other places in the area.

The ride is prepared and adapted to beginners / average riders. The biggest problem is the south facing position and that applies to the next all backs. The snow is suffering in the sun and the ridge with it. For those who prefer other than skiing (enjoying the sun, eating good food, shopping), Crans is definitely OK, but if you want to go skiing, there are more fun places

Crans-Montana is a typical Swiss "posh" ski resort there
Many wealthy Europeans and Arabs appear in the village. The slopes are big
turn all towards the south, which means that the snow melts fast. usually
just stick to the "high" parts.

It's quite expensive to be in Crans-Montana. But I think that
it is worth a visit.

The view of the Matterhorn, and the entire mountain range that stretches
to Mont Blanc is absolutely amazing! A helicopter fly to
Matterhorn only takes 20 minutes and is not an experience
forget!

There are nice off-piste opportunities in Crans-Montana. lovely
especially in the spring, from the glacier down behind "Aminona".
The season is getting shorter and shorter. I would recommend
after the 1st week of January to possibly early April (but then it is
slush).

I grew up in Crans-Montana but now live in Gothenburg. has
you questions, please contact me. And should you go to Crans-
Montana and meet a small happy old man named Roberto and
Who knows everything, just about the mountains there, then it's my dad. :)
