Les Belles Combes 2024 is canceled

Les Belles Combes, a Ski Classics Challengers event planned to take place in Les Moussières, France, on January 21, is now canceled due to snow conditions.

The 42km long Les Belles Combes takes place annually in the village of Les Moussières, in the middle of the Haut Jura Nature Parc. 

The Local Organizing Committee released a notice about the cancelation on their official website:

“Cancellation of Les Belles Combes 2024

We are unfortunately forced to cancel our 2024 edition. All races planned as part of Belles Combes 2024 are canceled. 

A more complete communication will follow as quickly as possible. Thank you for your understanding.”

Later today, an official release was announced:

“Les Belles Combes race will not take place in 2024

This is sad news for all ski enthusiasts: skiers, hikers, and spectators. The snow conditions in Haut-Jura, already “limited” since the start of winter, will certainly not withstand the rainy disturbance announced this week.

This is why the organizing committee did not persist: the ” Hautes-Combes ” symbolic race in the Jura Mountains can’t be maintained.
We have to go back to 2015 to find the last cancellation of the event due to insufficient snow!

We hope that the rest of the winter will allow other popular races to take place, on our massif as well at a national level.

Our club’s volunteers, Haut-Jura Ski, invite everyone in 2025 for a new edition of Les Belles Combes, in its most beautiful setting.
In the meantime, we also hope to see many of you at the various other ski competitions organized this winter by Haut Jura Ski.

Of course, we would like to thank all our loyal partners who have been supporting us for many years!

P.S.: Participants who registered for one of our events can get a complete refund or postpone their registration until next year.”

Les Belles Combes, a Ski Classics Challengers event, is a 42km long-distance ski race in classic technique. 

The course would take place in the magical “Hautes Combes,” only one hour drive from Geneva, Switzerland, and 1,5 hours from French cities Lyon, Annecy, and Besançon. The event has over 40 years of experience welcoming recreational and professional skiers alike.

Les Belles Combes were also offering freestyle technique races of 30km and 15km on Saturday, as well as classic technique distances of 23km and 15km on Sunday and cross-country skiing workshops throughout the event weekend.
