Crans Montana Ski Resort Guide & Piste Map
Crans Montana Resort Description
Crans-Montana is a ski resort in western Switzerland, in the heart of the Swiss Alps in the canton of Valais. It is located on a plateau above Sierre at an elevation of about 1500 m (4921 ft) above sea level.Situated on a sun-soaked high plateau, the resort offers its guests an impressive view of the majestic peaks from the Matterhorn to Mont Blanc. The 160 km of slopes, which incorporate 26 of the most modern cable railways, offer skiers and snowboarders challenging terrain.
Unlike most famous ski resorts the slopes are south facing, which means the town can claim to have some of the sunniest ski runs in skiing.
Famous for its pure mountain air, Crans Montana today is a large, cosmopolitan resort boasting over 60 international restaurants, an excellent range of shops, lively nightlife and culture.
