What’s the plan?

Saturday

Meet your guide at 09:30 at La Chaux-de-Fonds train station. Shuttle to the departure of the cross-country skiing trails and start of the tour.

Return to La Chaux-de-Fonds in late afternoon. For those staying for the entire weekend, dinner and night in town.

Alex will again give you some advice, introduce you to some exercises to make your technique better and make you discover the area.

Distance: approx. 25km
