Visitor Reviews of Crans Montana

D H from Luxembourg writes:

Just back from a marvellous week in Crans Montana in the Swiss mountains. I have been there 8 times in 7 years. Previously I was not always satisfied by the conditions on the ski runs but this winter every ski run was perfectly prepared.
Some older cable cars have been replaced by new ones, transporting more people in a shorter time. So, even if there may be fewer cable cars than in the past, this is a perfect place for people who like good ski runs and lovely mountain landscapes. (OK, those who are looking for après-ski will be disappointed).
I truly hope I will be able to come back next year. DH
