The holiday region of Franche-Comté is located in the east of France, bordering with 250 kilometers of Switzerland. The region is dominated by the mountain ranges of the Jura and the Vosges. Away from the tourist crowds, you will find here three UNESCO World Heritage sites, like the Citadel of Besançon, and pure relaxation and recreation possibilities for families. Franche-Comté has the largest cross-country area in Europe with 3,000 km of cross-country trails. However, the length of the trails is not the most important feature, but especially the stunning views and the quality of the trails are. The ski areas Monts Jura, Les Rousses and Métabief dominate the winter sports offer of the Franche-Comté region. In Monts Jura families will find a wide range of slopes. Whether beginner or professional, here you will find slopes which fit your requirements. The daring freestylers will find a funpark here with 5 jumping boxes but also a 400 meter long boardercross in Lélex – Crozet. Les Rousses offers a lot of variety with its 5 ski resorts right on the border to Switzerland. Cross-country skiers can take advantage of a 220 km long cross-country trail network. Métabief offers 40 kilometers of slopes, 20 km for beginners and 20 km for advanced cross-country skiers. Those who seek a thrill, can satisfy their needs in the funpark with jumps, rails, tables and a boardercross.
