Back to news

Alpine skiing or hiking, snow tubing or mountain biking, cross-country skiing or paragliding, Monts-Jura is a large resort at mid-mountain altitude resort. Only 20 minutes from Geneva in the midst of the Parc Naturel Régional du Haut-Jura, leisure on the green and white stuff abound here, at the foot of the Crêt de la Neige (1,720 m). From Monts Jura, you have a fabulous view over the Pays de Gex, Lake Geneva and the French-Italian-Swiss Alpis. And opposite the resort is none other than Mont Blanc!

 

Great Skiing … At a Gentle Pace

When it is wintry and white, four skiing areas converge in the Monts-Jura resort. There are three downhill skiing areas: Lelex-Crozet, Mijoux-La Faucille and Menthières plus the Nordic skiing area of La Vattay-La Valserine. These ski areas stretch across the mountains, between altitudes of 900 and 1,680 m. The resort can be accessed using the cable car from Crozet or by road to the slopes of Col de la Faucille or Menthières. In total, there are 29 ski lifts serving the downhill ski slopes. It has everything the big resorts have, but offers it a gentler pace and with less of a scramble. Therefore, it is perfect for families and laid-back skiers.

 

Moving onto the green … and the blue

On foot, bicycle or mountain bike, through woodland and hamlets, there are a thousand hiking paths for exploring the mountain range’s gentle hills. A tip for fishing fans! The white waters of the Valserine which flow through here harbour some lovely brown trout. There is even more peace and quiet at the golf courses in Mijoux, the Valserine course and the prestigious 5* Jiva Hill Resort in Crozet that embrace the contours and the pure nature of the resort. Get up to top speed on the all-year toboggan runs. The only place you’ll find this is in the Jura Mountains. With 1,160 m of rails and a dizzying 540° twist, this is a thrill…ing run! It is the longest in Europe and has some slopes reaching up to 37%.
