Télécabine la Catheline

The Monts Jura offers the ideal altitude for hiking between 900 and 1723 m. There are marked and maintained trails waiting for you.

Since Lélex, the gondola lift La Catheline brings you to the crests of the Haute Chaîne du Jura; climbing from 900m to 1450m altitude.
When you get there, you are only an hour and a half walk away from the Crêt de la Neige (172 3m), the highest point in the Jura.
At Lélex and Crozet, both gondolas are equipped for MTB riding in summer. Both the Catheline and the Fierney allow mountain bikers to go back up easily and quickly in order to better enjoy the descent on both sides of the mountain! Please note: electric mountain bikes are not allowed in the Catheline gondola.
It enables snowshoe enthusiasts to reach the summits easily and enjoy the crests in winter.
Please note: the gondola lift is close to the National Nature Reserve of the Haute Chaine du Jura where specific regulations apply. We thank you for respecting it. For further information, please consult the Nature Reserve's website.

Tips: Easy access to the ridges of the Jura allows you to travel effortlessly ... the Alps ...with your eyes.
