Some of the most stunning skiing in Europe as far as scenery is concerned can be found in Crans Montana. A great resort for beginner intermediates, not amazing for advanced, however advanced skiers will love the world cup down hill run. There are more red runs than there are black but some of these have quite a gradient.
Very typically, this Swiss resort is very popular with boarders. There are plenty of natural hits, pipes and parks to play in. Boarding tuition here is said to be some of the best in Europe.
There are excellent English speaking ski schools in Crans Montana. it is a great place to learn to Ski. The Swiss Ski School, has been in existence for 75 years. Group lessons are for 3 hours every morning (Monday to Friday) and include a drink. There is a race and a test at the end of the week.
