From the first snowfalls, the natural setting of Vallée de Joux is perfect for Nordic sports whereas Joux Lake turns into an ice rink.
Even though there are a few downhill ski slopes, Vallée de Joux privileges soft winter sports at one with nature. The preserved and pristine environment delights fans of cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Fans of downhill skiing enjoy this scenery during their day outings – and at night for even more sensations. Ice skaters monitor the periods of very cold weather because this is when Joux Lake turns into Europe’s largest natural "ice rink".
