Visitor Reviews of Crans Montana

Blanchard from France writes:

I come every year in Crans Montana for more than 20 years. I love this place for many reasons; it has the most beautiful panorama of all alpine resorts, you can enjoy the sun, much more than in Zermatt, for example, which in the shadow most of the time during the winter days. It is not overcrowded, like Verbier or Courchevel; there are many good restaurants and terraces. It is true that the pistes suffer from the south orientation, but in the recent years, artificial snow has been generalized and it is possible to ski during the whole season. A great resort!
