Just had a family holiday at Aminona. Skiing was great if you were up when the slopes opened but by lunch it was very slushy. Very relaxed resort compared to French resorts. Loved the Glacier run which provided a nice 5km run from the top. Winds did close the resort one day we were there but the next day provided great skiing on lovely powder. We did get a little bored of the runs by the end of the week but overall a great resort for intermediate skiers. ...

My husband and I visited Crans for a week from 12th Jan this year. Unfortunately the snow conditions were not great lower down the mountain which restricted the number of runs available. However, the slopes were quiet and the pistes were well groomed despite the icy conditions. We found piste markins to be almost non-existent and it was quite difficult to decide where you were at times as the colour coding on the piste map was not an accurate guide. Apres ski was a bit tame compared to some Austrian resorts we have visited. Anyway a very relaxed resort compared to French resorts. It is a quiet resort with very few queues, quiet uncrowded pistes and fantastic views. Crans Montana is known as ...

Originally two villages, the natural advantages and resulting popularity of Crans and Montana led to the two villages joining under one name in the 1960s. Those advantages begin with the resort's wonderful location, on a sunny terrace of lakes and woodland with views across the Rhone Valley and out towards the mountain peaks of the Matterhorn and Mont Blanc. A large, cosmopolitan resort boasting over 80 international restaurants, an excellent range of shops, lively nightlife and culture, a comprehensive program of activities and a wide-ranging choice of sporting activities beyond skiing. Crans Montana's main skiing is divided in to three areas although they are all well lift-linked to one an...

Crans is a fantastic all round resort, offering a great variety of runs. As it is not as well known as some of the bigger resorts, the slopes are generally uncrowded. The resort is actually 3 fully linked resorts (Crans, Montana & Aminona) providing over 100km of groomed runs, tree lined pisted runs, off-piste action and even a snowpark for the more adventerous. The resort also provides great activities for non-skiers: sledging, hiking, husky rides, paragliding. The prices in the resort are reasonable, with food and drink costs similar to those in the UK - a big difference to some of the French resorts. Overall, a great resort without the crowds found in many European resorts. We loved i...
