Ski hire - Jura
The Jura mountain range is located in the north-western border of the Alps and extends over 3 countries: France, Switzerland and Germany. The Jura is a mountain range with medium-sized mountains and peaks at an altitude of 1,720 m.
Far from the ski industry of the Alps, the villages in the Jura mountains have managed to retain their charm and authenticity of yesteryear. The Jura mountains offers unspoilt nature which makes it a great place to stay for those who enjoy walking and mountain-biking in the summer and skiers, hikers with snowshoes or even of dog-sledding in the winter.
Alpine skiing is less developed here than in other mountain ranges with only a dozen or so ski resorts with gentle slopes such as Les Rousses or Monts Jura. The Jura is especially reputed to be very popular for cross-country skiing with over 2,500 km of ski slopes. Each year, the Jura welcomes the legendary sports event, the Transjurassienne.
The Jura is an ideal destination for a relaxing holiday in the heart of nature, as a family or with friends. The Jura mountains offer a multitude of outdoor activities for all tastes.
