If you had to design a resort for a week's skiing you would come up with Crans-Montana, it is modern, 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 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 – the Bietschhorn to Mont-Blanc via the Matterhorn – are mind-blowing.

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. The 140 km of ski slopes, which incorporate 26 of the most modern cable railways, offer skiers and snowboarders challenging terrain.
Crans Montana has forty kilometres of cross country ski trails and 60 kilometres of groomed winter hiking paths offer adventure
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.
