Snowshoeing has only lately become a well-known sport. However, since a few years this novelty is really expanding. More and more people of all ages practice snowshoeing, which demands little knowledge, but nevertheless requires quite intensive efforts. Consequently, the Nordic sports centres (Centres nordiques) of Vallée de Joux have adapted themselves and arranged snowshoe walks of various distances throughout our district.

To walk with snowshoes on is in fashion. From La Thomassette, Les Charbonnières, Le Marchairuz or Le Mollendruz, go for an adventurous walk on one of the 9 proposed tours in our region. Snowshoeing offers you an incomparable opportunity to discover our landscape and animal world. As a matter of fact, if skiing doesn’t come easy to you, snowshoeing remains the best way to fill yourself with the magnificent scenery of Vallée de Joux.


Starting points for snowshoe walks:
Le Brassus, La Thomassette 5 km 
Col du Marchairuz 24 km 
Col du Mollendruz 15 km 
Les Charbonnières, La Douane (the border) 4 km
