Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Crans Montana versus Cervinia

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Can anyone offer a comparison of Crans Montana (which is mostly reds) with the reds in Cervinia?

I found the Cervinia slopes just about ok.

Also does anyone know what the worst school holiday dates are? I know Austria ends 22nd Feb, and Italy has the whole of the following week off.

Many thanks in advance.

Crans lower and also south facing to state the obvious, and could therefore be a little softer in the afternoon. I however am also interested in more knowledgeable Crans answers. I will say that Cervinia reds are on average a little easier than Zermatt reds, - does this play out in another swiss resort Puzzled

I've been to both, although CM was a long time ago. I enjoyed them both but would probably say CM has better variety of runs.. unless you add the Zermatt link to Cervinia, in which case this wins hands down. I was only a very early intermediate when I went to CM and I found the reds absolutely fine.
Can't help re school holiday info though.

Having discovered next to zero accommodation (under about 1k/night Smile ) and having heard reports of long lift queues, I am now looking a little further down the road at Bettmeralp / Riederalp /
Fiescheralp.

Unfortunately it may be a bad time to go now because it is so warm so even the current snowfall won't last. I see Bellwald (2,560m) is forecasting +3 (min) and +7 (max) which is incredible.

Zermatt reds were certainly steeper than the ones at Cervinia.

What do you mean with ‘just about ok’?
Do you like it more easy, or more challenging?
Anyways, both Crans and Aletsch area are very southfacing, so both not the best in warm conditions

I would prefer not harder than Cervinia.

Most people say Cervinia reds are quite easy. However I think they are just mostly wide and very evenly shaped.
