Crans-Montana Municipality in Sierre District in the canton of Valais, Switzerland, is World-famous for the 1987 alpine ski racing World Championships. In addition, the town is usually on the World Cup schedule for women's speed events. Apart from skiing surrounded by scenic, breathtaking views, you can enjoy adrenaline rush moments cycling from the mountaintop to the valley.
The Crans-Montana resort in Switzerland, which is 1,500m high, is a ski haven for freestylers and snowboarders. It has the second biggest snow park in the country and is popular for sports like hiking, squash, and tennis. The resort also has mountain climbing, paragliding, and water skiing facilities. And during summer, tourists can enjoy hiking and cycling while taking pictures of the scenic views of the Alps.
Crans-sur-Sierre and Montana-Vermala are two old mountain villages with unique characteristics. Crans is modern and stylish, with its streets lined with boutiques and jewelry stores, while Montana is considerably smaller, more rustic, and old-fashioned.
Once the two towns started marketing as a single resort, it blurred the line of their supposed difference, making it difficult to tell where Crans ended and Montana began.
Occupying a forested, south-facing site above the Rhone valley, the resort has lost nearly all trace of its early 19th-century origins. One of the most favorite annual activities is the prestigious Omega European Masters golf tournament that boasts a €2,000,000 prize fund.
