The Ski Resort
The small village of Bellefontaine lies hidden at the foot of the Risoux forest, about 6 km away from Morbie. Together with the four larger villages Les Rousses, Premanon, Lamoura and Bois-d´Amont, it forms the skiing area Haut-Jura, which offers a variety of territory and many different ways to enjoy your winter sport activities.
Bellefontaine´s skiing area is limited to one green, one red and one blue trail. However there is a nicely groomed cross-country trail of 70km. At night one of the cross-country trails is lighted, which makes the village a nice place to visit for all Nordic-Skiing enthusiasts. It is also a good place for parents who want to help their children learn how to ski on the small green trail which has its own baby lift.
