Sainte-Croix/Les Rasses - ski area

A rejuvenating winter in Yverdon-les-Bains Jura Lake

Known far and wide for its winter sports offer, above all cross-country, the region of Yverdon-les-Bains is also a cultural, rejuvenating and gastronomic destination for a winter vacation that appeals to the whole family.

Above Yverdon-les-Bains, Les Rasses and L'Auberson offer wonderful snowshoeing and cross-country outings. Sportspeople appreciate the network of more than 100 km of tracks and the beautiful panorama. Located at an altitude of 1,150 to 1,606 m, the Les Rasses ski region includes seven facilities that are ideal for learners.

After their effort, visitors can relax in Yverdon-les-Bains. The second-largest town of the canton of Vaud has maintained a spa tradition since Roman times. Gourmets combine relaxation with a good meal and a wine from the nearby Bonvillars AOC vineyards.

A land of nature and culture, the region of Yverdon-les-Bains offers many interesting places to visit throughout the year: the CIMA and Baud Museums dedicated to the tradition of music boxes in Sainte-Croix, the abbey church of Romainmôtier, the caves of Vallorbe, the castle of Grandson and Maison d’Ailleurs, a museum of science fiction that is unique in Europe. At the end of the winter, the region celebrates the carnivals, which go under the name of “Brandons” here.
