The rolling hills of the Jura are perfect for cross-country skiing. The birthplace of champions, the Haut Doubs boasts 500 km of marked cross-country ski trails carrying the Nordique France label. There are circuits for every level and all ages, providing enjoyment for everyone whether young or old.
You can explore the region by skiing from one village to the next, or, for more experienced skiers, you can try out a section of the Grande Traversée du Jura (the Transjurassienne cross-country ski race).
Dual trail marking lets you try out a variety of different runs, day or night, on floodlit trails.
