In Foncine you can ski on both sides of the village: on the side of the Forêt du Mont Noir, the slopes start at Valentin's, and you reach other small mythical villages of the Jura Mountains: Chapelle des Bois, Pré Poncet on one side and Bellefontaine on the other. Opposite is the Bayard, on the Forêt de la Haute Joux side, with slightly easier slopes offering another view of Foncine
