CME Retreat Anesthesia Conference – Crans-Montana, Switzerland

Location Crans-Montana, Switzerland
Date February 3-7, 2020

Anesthesia Conferences Combining High-Level Education with Vacation

The CME Retreats are specially designed anesthesia conferences that provide the best-in-class educational experience in some of the most inspiring locations around the world.


The two neighboring resorts of Crans and Montana lie on a sunny plateau high above the Rhone Valley, and together they make up one of the biggest holiday destinations. Embodying both an idyllic mountain village and alpine town, Crans-Montana is one of the inspiring locations chosen for NYSORA’s CME Retreat Anesthesia Conferences. It combines all the comforts of a modern holiday resort with an expansive natural landscape and panoramic views of the Swiss Alps.

Extremely popular during the wintertime, the ski slopes stretch from the high plateau up to the Plaine Morte Glacier at 3000 meters. There is something for everyone, from beginners and deep-snow skiers to advanced skiers looking for a challenge. During the winter season, Crans-Montana comes alive with skiers from all over the world.

On the other hand, these resorts offer a wide range of activities for non-skiers as well. From ice skating and snowshoeing, indoor swimming pools and sports facilities, snowmobiles and dog sled rides, to helicopter tours and paragliding.

Another essential part of the winter experience in Crans-Montana are the Après Ski (after ski) parties not only in a wide variety of pubs but on the ski stations as well.

Crans-Montana also offers a wonderful array of luxury retail shops and quirky boutiques and has a rich gastronomical offer from mountain huts to Michelin-starred establishments.


Energize your senses at the Crans Ambassador – a place where memories are made. This legendary 5-star hotel in the Crans-Montana ski resort sits in a spectacular panoramic location in the Swiss Alps, as if suspended in mid-air against a backdrop of clear mountain skies.

Behind its iconic facade, guests relax in the elegant warmth of its amber-hued interior, with keynotes of wood and stone. With their breathtakingly panoramic views of the Alpine peaks of the Haut Plateau, the 56 rooms and suites, bar lounge, restaurants and spa offer a warmly luxurious yet contemporary environment. When it comes to relaxation, the Crans Ambassador is total indulgence at the heart of nature.

The hotel is offering special rates for NYSORA participants. Please click here to book.
