And to expand your ski area even further, if you have chosen a 6-day all-area pass for your stay, take advantage of a day of discovery in the Métabief and Monts Jura ski areas.

It is also possible to use alternative means of transport such as skibus shuttles and snow buses that will drop you off as close as possible to the practice sites.

It is also possible for pedestrians to enjoy the exceptional views over Mont Blanc from Dôle and the Lake Geneva basin or the view from the top of the Tuffes peaks over the Les Rousses resort with a pedestrian return trip.
