Luxury in Crans Montana: A resort for nice people: polite, elegant and refined
The neighbouring resorts of Crans and Montana, in Valais, form one of the biggest ski destinations. This is a good resort for different levels of skiers and especially well-suited for intermediate skiers. There is a piste for skaters and Crans Montana is a paradise for cross-country skiers. Broad carving pistes and the valley descent down the long 12km Piste Nationale are very popular. The attractive, cosmopolitan town is a mecca for those who see shopping and social fondue evenings in rustic inns as part and parcel of luxury winter holidays. Comfortable luxury catered chalets and the enjoyment of haute cuisine will make any ski holiday experience unforgettable. The Funpark in this family-friendly resort provides highly enjoyable activities for young and old.
The ski slopes stretch from the 1500m high plateau above the Rhone Valley to the Plaine Morte Glacier at 3000m. The area attracts a fashionable clientele from all over the world, because of its easy access and spectacular views. The two towns form an elitist resort for grown-ups and families and many people can be seen walking, shopping, or leisurely cross-country skiing, rather than being up at the crack of dawn to go down the steepest black pistes. The village also boasts a renowned cultural and conference centre. Leo Trippi has magnificent luxury catered chalets in Crans Montana available for rental. Luxury apartments, as well as luxury chalets and luxury apartments on a self-catered basis can also be provided.
