Although everyone knows the name Crans Montana, the area is actually made up of three communes – Crans, Montana and Aminona. Crans Montana is a town in Canton Valais, Switzerland. The British introduced skiing to the area and it is now famous for its winter sports, but Crans Montana is also a great place in summer, situated as it is on a sunny south-facing plateau.

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 program of activities all year round.

Idyllic mountain village or alpine town? Crans-Montana embodies both.

Crans-Montana combines all the comforts of a modern holiday resort with an expansive natural landscape and panoramic views of the Valais Alps. In September the resort is host to the European golf championships, with courses designed by Severiano Ballesteros and Jack Nicklaus.

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.
