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. These activities can be practised day and night for even greater thrills. Ice skaters monitor the periods of very cold weather because this is when Joux Lake turns into Europe’s largest natural ice rink.
