Destinations / Europe

After debuting earlier in 2023, Six Senses Crans-Montana kicks off its first official and full ski season Dec. 1 with an array of new experiences for family travelers. Located in the Swiss Alps, the resort offers a white carpet ski concierge, specialized wellness experiences for post-slope adventures, paragliding experiences and an exclusive first tracks ski pass.

 

Set among an awe-inspiring winter wonderland, the property offers views stretching across the Valais Valley, from the Swiss Matterhorn on the left to the French Mont Blanc massif on the right. No matter what you choose, the hotel curated offerings perfect for every type of winter adventure desired. Specialized adventures include:

 

Ski Spa Curated Recovery

Six Senses Integrated Wellness experiences allow guests to benefit from post-ski personalized programs. The Biohack Recovery Lounge uses the latest tools to aid muscle recovery and prevent injuries. Additionally, travelers can utilize the sensory Aufguss Ceremony hosted by Skilled Sauna Meisters and the Assisted Stretch Pod, where therapists use body weight to increase maneuverability.

 

Paraglide Off Slopes

During the winter, embark on a sunset flight by paragliding from the slopes to land on the property. Capture that once-in-a-lifetime moment on camera for souvenirs.

 

Ski In, Ski Out, White Carpet

Offering more than 87 miles of ski runs and a variety of slopes ranging from beginner to expert, the hotel’s Ski Concierge allows guests to roll out of bed and onto the snow without lifting a ski.

 

Snowshoe and Dine

Daily guided snowshoe treks allow travelers to explore mountain trails day and night. During this two-hour trek, guests are given gourmet Valaisin food and customizable snacks, lunch or dinner upon request.

 

Snowflake Nature Walks

Travelers who are not skiers can go on a 2.5-hour nature walk with expert guides to learn about animal tracks and nature facts amongst the snow. After the excursion, guests are welcomed back with hot chocolate and gingerbread.
