Les Chaux - Taveyanne - Coufin

Enjoy a cross-country skiing outing from Les Chaux and discover the beautiful hamlet of Taveyanne, covered in snow.

Take the gondola from La Barboleuse to access this trail. Upon arrival, you need to cross the ski runs to get to the start of the trail. Then ski down a gently sloping hill to the snow-covered hamlet of Taveyanne. Another, slightly steeper descent leads you first to La Place and then to Coufin. Don’t forget to take in the spectacular views along the way.
