About the Mountains near Crans Montana

The resorts slopes are spread over three well linked areas with a fair number of woodland slopes which are good in bad weather. There is a free bus service and a modern well designed lift system with few queues. Although there is plenty of off piste there isn't too much to keep the expert too busy. The intermediates will find mostly wide pistes that are not too challenging. The beginner will be pleased to see that most of the slopes are good and vary in difficulty.
