Ski and snowboard enthusiasts from around the world:

We have been proud to provide you with free access to snow reports, resort guides and more, and we are beyond grateful for your readership and contributions to our community over the years.

Unfortunately given the changing media landscape, Mountain News Corporation has experienced financial declines in recent years. With additional economic challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic now facing our business, it is not financially viable to continue operating.

Mountain News Corporation and our OnTheSnow and Skiinfo websites will be shutting down. We will explore the possibility of selling, partnering, or contributing assets to another media outlet if there is an opportunity to allow for a consistent or enhanced online experience. For inquiries about Mountain News Corporation, please email Feedback_OTS@mountainnews.com.

We want to thank our loyal employees for their tireless work over the years to bring great information to all of you. We take comfort knowing that our collective passion for the sport of skiing and snowboarding will certainly live on.

We’ll see you on the mountain.

Overview

Located in the southern part of the Jura mountains, Monts Jura is made up of three Alpine ski areas: - Lélex - Crozet, 15 minutes from Geneva, - Mijoux – La Faucille, 10 minutes from Gex - Menthières, 15 minutes from Bellegarde. In total, 60km of marked ski runs spread over 800 vertical meters, snowmaking equipment covering 30 hectares of slopes guaranteeing that you can ski right back to the village. (Note that two ski-buses run between the different sites: one serving the valley between Lélex/Mijoux/La Faucille/La Vattay and the other serves the Pays de Gex, from Ferney to La Faucille/La Vattay). Monts Jura also has two Nordic ski areas (La Vattay-Valserine, 5 minutes from the Col de la Menthières and Menthirères 15 minutes from Bellegarde). There are more than 120km of cross country skiing trails readily prepared in double track format (skating and classical). For the new generation of skiers and snowboarders, the Monts Jura ski resort has two different bordercross courses (one in Lélex/Crozet and one in Mijoux/ La Faucille) and also a snow park. Three ski schools and five day-care centres enable adults to free up some time for themselves either relaxing or practicing existing or new winter sports: alpine skiing, snowboarding, telemark skiing ... On the Col de la Faucille, the year round sledging centre which travels through the pine forests has over a kilometre of banked turns and a 540 ° spiral. Don't miss out on: the multimedia dome. An ultra-modern interactive-art centre with a flight simulator, a panoramic screen display and interactive kiosks allowing you to discover the rich heritage and the magnificent views from the highest peaks of the Jura! Finally, for those who love nothing better than enjoying peaceful, untouched nature, Monts Jura has a large choice of signposted snowshoeing trails. They are accessible from La Vattay, La Faucille, Menthières, the villages of Mijoux and Lélex and from the chair lifts of La Catheline, le Fierney, and le Montrond.
