A commercial alliance between Crans Montana Aminona and the Compagnie du Mont Blanc to offer ski days in each partner resort
Crans-Montana, 29 November 2021 - The Crans Montana Aminona ski lifts (CMA SA) and the Compagnie du Mont-Blanc (CMB SA) have entered into a partnership. As a result of this commercial alliance, specially created "Crans-Montana + Chamonix" day passes will give access to the ski area of the partner resort for a day of your choice valid for all 2 to 6 day passes purchased. Season or annual pass holders will be able to obtain up to 3 days in the partner resort, depending on their pass. Skiers from Crans-Montana or the Compagnie du Mont Blanc (Chamonix) will thus be able to enjoy a very flexible getaway in the French or Swiss resort, at their convenience in winter or summer.
The offer is part of a commercial agreement between the Crans Montana Aminona ski lifts (CMA SA) and the Compagnie du Mont-Blanc (CMB SA) and allows skiers who have a subscription to either of these resorts to enjoy one or more days of skiing in the partner's ski area.
For Crans-Montana customers, the passes automatically give access to the Chamonix ski area for one day for the Pass 100 or 180, two for the 365 and three for the 365+, to be used during the period of validity of their subscription. Customers taking a short break can also benefit from this offer with a day of their choice valid for the duration of their day pass (from 2 to 6 days). Conversely, an equivalent offer is available to skiers in the Chamonix area depending on the Compagnie du Mont Blanc pass purchased.
"We are very happy to be able to complete and enhance our package offer with the possibility of a getaway in Chamonix. This alliance brings together two exceptional areas that we want to introduce to the people of Chamonix as well as to all our subscribers. In the future, it could also give rise to other collaborations between these two destinations which have many points in common", says Maxime Cottet, Director of the Crans-Montana ski lifts.
"We are very happy to welcome Crans-Montana as one of our commercial partners. I hope that this agreement will enable us to welcome and introduce the Chamonix ski areas to many holders of year, season or holiday passes from Crans-Montana and the surrounding area. We are also delighted to be able to offer our MONT BLANC UNLIMITED year, season and holiday pass holders a new playground to discover. This partnership is a perfect fit with our marketing strategy for the MONT BLANC UNLIMITED pass, which offers a skiing and sightseeing experience around Mont Blanc between France, Switzerland and Italy", adds Antoine BURNET, Sales & Marketing Director of the Compagnie du Mont-Blanc Group.
Note that the offer is valid from December onwards, depending on the snow conditions and the opening of the facilities, without restriction on the opening days of the Chamonix* or Crans-Montana** areas. Customers go to the cash desk of the partner resort to exchange their counter-mark (QR code or coupon) and activate their Key-ticket.
