Hello,

We will visit the Crans-Montana (Sirrie/Siders/Bluche) region this summer. We will mainly use the SMC bus/funicular (http://www.cie-smc.ch/) there.

1. If we are holding the valid Swiss Passes, is SMC Company a participant of the Swiss Passes so that we can travel its vehicles free of charge, or at discount, or to the worse case, we have to pay full because the Swiss Pass does not cover the SMC vehicle.

2. Where can I download the time table and fare information of the bus/funicular services?

3. Any experience and comments with the SMC vehicles and their service to share?

4. Any experience and comments with the small inn Auberge du Petit Paradis there to share?

Thank you!!

Hello Johannes61,

1. On the Swiss Pass page you can download a PDF overview of the network on which the Swiss Pass is valid. You'll see that SMC services are fully covered by the Swiss Pass, so you can use these for free.
2. You can download timetable and fare information from the website you linked to. Besides, if you want to plan other trips as well, it may be a good idea to use the Swiss Timetable (available as a reliable app for smartphones as well).
3. No personal experience with these services, but I do know the Swiss transportation system is famous for its services and accuracy. So, I'm quite sure the SMC won't disappoint you!

Have a great time!

Great thanks Wandermann!!

But when I click the 'overview of the network on which the Swiss Pass is valid' wishing to download the related PDF, it goes to the SwissTravelSystem website and says '404--Page Not Found'.

Any idea what has happened? Can you type me a direct link for me to go to that useful web page directly?

Thanks again anyway!!

Great thanks again Wandermann,

But unfortunately the web page came out the same, says '404 -- Page Not Found'". I will try to figure it out. But I sincerely thank you for your kindness trying to help.

Cheers!!

Hi johannes61 and Wandermann. The map doesn't work at the moment indeed, and we're working on it! As for SMC: yes, that's covered by the Swiss Pass. I think I e-mailed that answer to your request yesterday, johannes61. Did you receive my mail? Kind regards,
Arno
