The 100,000 m2 of Crans Montana Snowpark is spread over 2 sites and offer beginner to pro modules, crafted to perfection by the crew of shapers . The crew pushes their creativity every year by imagining new modules and lines to deliver a unique evolving snowpark year on year.

Art & Culture | Crans-Montana

Culture is also popular culture in a region which has a strong identity, in the heart of the Alps and in the heart of the canton of Valais. You’ll see traces of this history in the Grand-Lens Museum, you’ll understand more about transhumance by visiting the Colombire Alp Museum, or the place of wine in this region where vines wind along the hills stretching up the mountainside. Guides are on hand if you want to understand the real soul of the Haut Plateau region.

The Pierre Arnaud Foundation in the neighbouring village of Lens, hopes to raise the status of Swiss painting, comparing it to important international trends. It also aims to compare ancient and modern civilisations. With its glass façade, which reflects the waters of Lake Louché, the Foundation’s art centre dedicates an area of 1000m2 to exhibitions on two levels.
