Downhill skiing

Far away from the crowds in the alpine ski resorts, Vallée de Joux and Vaulion welcome you on large and familiar ski slopes. 11 ski lifts on altogether 42 km long slopes await you in a unique panorama.

From Vaulion to Le Brassus, through L’Abbaye and L’Orient, alpine skiing enthusiasts make use of a range of slopes that would surprise more than one specialist: admiring a 360-degree panoramic view from the summit of Dent de Vaulion, overlooking Lac de Joux at the top of L’Abbaye, go night skiing in L’Orient and slaloming between the firs in Le Brassus delight many skiers and snowboarders. 

Given the advantageous conditions to learn skiing at a competitive cost, far from the crowds, Vallée de Joux is an attractive area for families and beginners. 

As to those who enjoy night skiing and regional food, the “ski – fondue” combination is a speciality of Vallée de Joux. The lit-up ski slope in L’Orient opens from Tuesday until Friday night; once you’ve rushed down a few times, you can have a fondue at a restaurant nearby.
