Rest of the Year

Rest of the Year

Spring, Summer & Autumn

Unlike many ski resorts, Crans Montana and the surrounding area is an all-year-round resort.  From mountain biking and walking on the high alpine passes through to more gentle walking, relaxing by the lakes or spas and exploring the many local vinyards, there is something for everyone.

Chalet des Alpes is open for business throughout the year. The spring weather in May & June is perfect for walking. July and August can be hot and there are plenty of lakes and pools to help you cool off. If you wish to walk above 3000 metres the top lifts are open in July and August. Lifts up to 2200 metres are open from June through to the end of October. September & October have comfortable temperatures and of course the wonderful Autumn colours in late October. There are so many activities and places to visit – this is just a small sample:

  • Walking – 180 km of marked trails
  • Mountain Biking
  • Horse Riding
  • Golf
  • Wine tasting
  • Parapenting (paragliding)            
  • Alpine Adventure
  • Swimming (pools and lakes)        
  • Hot Air Ballooning
