One of the most beautiful ski areas in the world at your feet
In Crans-Montana, you ski at altitudes between 1,500 metres (resort altitude) and 3,000 metres (Plaine-Morte Glacier). On a network of 140 kilometers of marked pistes! And there’s something for all tastes and all levels: 17 blue pistes (55km), 20 red pistes (70 km), 4 black slopes (15 km). And they’re well prepared, a third of them have snow cannons which guarantee an excellent ski season. There are 27 cable cars – Funitel, cable cars, chair lifts, button lifts and… magic carpets for beginners!
The pistes are long and wide, which means that skiers and snowboarders can safely use them side by side. And adrenaline junkies can get their kicks in the snowpark which is all theirs. Finally, on some slopes, you can also ski at night! And it’s also possible to organize magical torch-lit descents. Also you will find in Crans Montana one of the most beautiful and longest (6 km) sledge slopes of Switzerland.
These programs are focused on mountain freeride, for excellent skiers and snowboarders, whose technical skills allow them to operate in any type of snow (powder, crust, etc). The lessons are given by experienced off-piste skiers and boarders, developing and refining mountaincraft and freeride skills.
