Bearer tickets do not include user identification.
Registered tickets carry the identification of the users. They are strictly personal and are not transferable or assignable.
All public fares for tickets and media are available at points of sale and online at www.crans-montana.ch/fr/cma/cma_tarifs_hiver. They include all taxes. It is the customer's responsibility to inquire about the products and rates offered, in order to select the most advantageous for him/her.
