What clients say

Good afternoon Gerry,

I would like to say a few "thank-you"s to the Ski Company staff which I hope you would pass on for me. Firstly, all of the students loved the trip! They all thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience from start to finish. I had many, many emails from parents and guardians when we returned, all extremely happy with the stories their children were telling them in their excitement.

The obvious highlight for the students was the skiing and snowboarding lessons, learning the skills during the week, making huge progress and then showing off on the last couple of days! I thought the ski school were particularly good this year considering we brought away with us such a unique group of students. The ski school took the time to learn about our students needs individually and motivated them really well to improve.

I thought the accommodation was great for both staff and students. Spacious, clean and great location. Zero complaints!

Matt and his team in the kitchen not only provided a fantastic menu of tasty meals but the service was friendly and caring and the kitchen/service staff could not do enough to make sure everyone was fed. Hats off to the team!

Seb and Andy, our two reps, I cannot sing their praises enough! The two guys never stopped! Always checking in on our students whether on the slopes, in the kit rooms or around the hotel ensuring they were all comfortable and having a good time. They were absolute legends!

And finally a big thank you to Olly, Becky and yourself for the organisational support prior and during the trip, your ability to help de-stress situations that arose and the opportunities you created for our students. You provided the foundations for memories that will live long in the minds of our students and hopefully turn them on lifelong snow sports enthusiasts!

Much appreciated

Josh, Harris Academy Schools, Crans-Montana Easter 2018

 

The Setting

NEWS

Crans-Montana has been nominated by European Best Destinations in the "Best Ski Resorts in Europe" category !

New member Crans-Montana expands the exclusive Best of the Alps circle to 12 top destinations. For more than a quarter of a century, Best of the Alps has stood for the incomparable alpine charm and high standards of its associated destinations.

These locations share an impressive tradition of tourism and range of services, as well as a combination of their own unique flair and a special attitude to life.

Belonging to this illustrious group of internationally acclaimed tourist destinations in the Alps are Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, Cortina d'Ampezzo, Davos, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Grindelwald, Kitzbühel, Lech Zürs am Arlberg, Megève, Seefeld, St. Anton am Arlberg and St. Moritz. They are now also joined by the Valais tourist paradise Crans-Montana, bringing the Best of the Alps circle back up to 12 legendary destinations again.

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.
