Every little helps...

Skiing is a wonderful and exhilarating sport, however going on a week's ski holiday does not come cheap, going skiing as a family is certainly not cheap, going skiing with a currency that seems to be worth less each and every year only adds to the financial burden, the family ski holiday is quickly becoming unaffordable.

BUT with the help of all our suppliers both in the UK and Switzerland we have rolled back the years to the days when Sterling was worth something and a trip to the Alps was far more affordable.

For this trip this is what we are offering:

Book your trip with peace of mind

Worried about the snow conditions ? The question we all ask, will we have snow over Christmas or New Year ?

Who knows - certainly not me ! All I can say is that the resort is at 1500m, there are nursey slopes at 1750m and 2250m, the top lift station is 3000m, there are over 200 snow cannons in place, the average snowfall for December alone is 155 cms so we should be fine.

BUT you only pay a deposit of £25 per person, the balance is due by Friday 16th November, so if you think by this date that we are in for a bad winter you simply do not pay the balance due, your holiday is cancelled and you have no further financial liability.

For any questions / queries please contact Gerry at The Ski Company on 020 8858 9535 / skicompany@skicompany.net

The Setting

If you had to design a ski resort for a short, relaxing break, you would come up with Crans-Montana, it is highly civilised, rarely crowded and extremely friendly.

The resort is spread along a south-facing balcony halfway up the 3000m massif that soars above Sierre in the Swiss canton of Valais.  With clear skies above and fresh snow – Crans-Montana takes some beating, the pistes are mostly gentle blues and reds, better suited to graceful cruising than thigh-burning descents, though there is plenty of variety. The mountains you bounce down with the midday sun full on your face are charmingly scenic, the mountains you gaze at – Zermatt’s Matterhorn just discernible among them – are mind-blowing.

The resort is actually two villages, Crans and Montana, that over time have effectively merged into one. Crans is the more upmarket  – shops include Prada, Louis Vuitton, Bally and Montblanc – Montana is younger and livelier, especially later in the evening.

When a ski area’s one of the world’s sunniest and has a skiable glacier to boot, the season sees some incredible mountain conditions.

Crans-Montana’s top point is a mighty 3000m, where the Plaine-Morte glacier covers a whacking great 10 square kilometres. A fabulous red run snakes down to Les Violettes at 2250m – but before you ski it, the ‘Imperial Crown’ of surrounding 4000m summits are well worth a gawp at.

Though famed for its sunny disposition, the top half of the area is high enough to hold onto the white stuff all winter, with the rest of the slopes getting a discrete top up via 200+ snow cannons.
