The two neighboring resorts of Crans and Montana are situated at an altitude of 1500 m on a sun-drenched plateau high above the Rhone Valley. Together they form one of the biggest holiday destinations in Switzerland. 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 and combines all the comforts of a modern holiday resort with an expansive natural landscape and panoramic views of the Alps. The modern side of Crans-Montana offers the most extensive alpine shopping for miles around. It also boasts a renowned cultural and convention center; and a wide range of accommodations. As a venue for major sporting events, and with a reputation as a golfing Mecca, Crans-Montana draws visitors from all over the world. Commune with nature in this family-friendly resort, where you can enjoy five swimming lakes; walks through aromatic mountain forests along an extensive network of footpaths; and cozy fondue evenings in rustic inns.
Crans-Montana is about two hours away from Geneva International Airport and can easily be accessed by train/bus. The bus stops steps away from the apartment.
In addition to well-known sports like hiking, tennis and squash, Crans-Montana has facilities for canyoning, mountain climbing, water skiing and paragliding. The attractive skiing areas of the Plaine Morte glacier plateau are also ideal for summer hiking. Particular summer favorites are the five swimming lakes right next to the resort.
Crans-Montana has a long golfing tradition. The 18-hole Severiano Ballesteros Golf Course with its breath-taking views is situated on the high plateau of Crans. The international elite meets here every year for golfing tournaments. Crans is the yearly host of the famous European Golf Masters.
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 trails 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 trails 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 one especially for skaters. On your hike, stop at one of the many warming huts to enjoy a hot beverage while wrapped up in a blanket soaking in the panoramic view of the Alps!

Why Nadia de Winter chose Montana
I choose Crans Montana due to all the activities all year around and the convenient location right at the border to Italy and France .In the winter the skiing and the summer endless hiking trails and specially golfing. It is impossible to talk about Crans-Montana without mentioning its magnificent golf courses. The Plan-Bramois course was voted the best course in Switzerland by the Swiss professional golfers. The specialised magazines Golf Monthly and Golf Magazine classify its seventh hole as one of the 500 finest in the world. The Jack Nicklaus course, for its part, is classified third in the finest Swiss golf courses. Here, nature plays its part… The most important Swiss tournament, the Omega European Masters, has also chosen Crans-Montana for its major annual event.
