The music box is to Sainte-Croix what skiing is to Les Rasses: a passion dating back generations.
The focus of Sainte-Croix’s industrial activity is mechanical art and watch-making and visitors can view the town’s masterpieces, automatons and music boxes at the Musée Baud. The opening of the museum combining the CIMA, the Baud Museum and the Museum of Arts and Sciences is planned for 2024.
Overlooking the floating winter mists, Les Rasses has a tourist tradition dating back over a century. The ski area (1,150 to 1,606 m altitude) has 9 lifts ideal for learning to ski in a safe environment. Les Rasses and L'Auberson are a paradise for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing (over 100 km of trails) with spectacular views over the Alps and Mont-Blanc. In summer, hikers and cyclists are energised by the pure air of the Jura and the wide range of hotels, holiday accommodation and chalet-restaurants with terraces enhances the unique authentic experience.
