Prestigious. Alpine. Festive. What better way to describe the Swiss resort of Crans-Montana? The two villages of Crans and Montana, both situated at an altitude of 1,500 meters, offer remarkable experiences to their guests.
At Les Roches Crans-Montana, we are in touching distance of this legendary resort, so we know all about the amazing things it has to offer.
Here are our 5 top reasons why you should hop on a plane straight to Switzerland and spend a few days in one of the country’s most renowned mountain resorts!
1. Amazing winter adventures
If you decide to spend your winter holidays in a ski resort, you should not think twice: Crans-Montana has what you need! From the amazing ski slopes that go up to 3,000 meters, to the exciting festivities that take place during the season, your winter adventure in Crans-Montana will be memorable!
And let’s not forget the after-ski experience!
Start with a stop on the terrace of Cry d’Er and its amazing view over the Swiss Alps. Whether it is for lunch or after-ski, you need to spend some time at this beautiful Restaurant-Club located right on the slopes.
Once you have admired the view, catch one of the cable cars and go back down to the village and stop by ZeroDix, your favorite place for a proper after-ski experience! People, food and drinks, DJ and live music, this bar-restaurant is the best place to meet with your friends and family after a day on the slopes!
2. It is also a 4-season resort!
When you hear about Crans-Montana, you immediately think of winter. But you might also be surprised by the number of activities that you can do all year round!
Crans-Montana offers many more activities over the four seasons!
For instance, you can spend some time at one of the region’s most famous golf clubs, where certified golfers can play on the main championship courses while first swingers can begin on easier terrain. Did we mention that it is the home of the Omega European Masters, where some of the most famous golfers and worldwide celebrities come to the resort to compete?
You might also be interested in some more extreme activities!
Let’s take the Alaïa Chalet. With over 5,000 square meters of space, this brand-new complex is all about adrenaline and fun. From its indoor trampoline gym to both the outdoor and indoor skateparks, you will find yourself loving the concept!
And of course, this is just a small pick: Crans-Montana offers many more activities over the four seasons!
3. Festivals and international events
Crans-Montana’s location makes it a paradise for events of all sorts. From the space to the view offered by the two luxurious towns, the resort is host to some amazing events that take place throughout the year.
From the Omega European Masters and the Longines Jumping, to the famous Caprices Festival of electro music and the Audi FIS Women’s Ski World Cup, you can attend all types of exciting events no matter the season.
4. One night out in Crans-Montana
To start the evening, you might wish to go up to one of the resort’s two most beautiful 5* hotels: LeCrans Hotel & Spa and the Crans Ambassador. Both hotels provide you with elite service and their terraces offer a remarkable view over the mountain chains. Why not enjoy a nice glass of local wine while admiring the Alpine landscape?
Let’s move on to the next stage of your evening: the Moon Bar. Situated in Crans, this classy, underground bar is the perfect place to enjoy some tasty and freshly-made cocktails!
And if you reckon your night should not stop there, we suggest you head to Sky Club, currently the number one nightclubbing destination.
5. Prestige on the streets
