Chapelle-des-Bois is known as the Mecca of cross-country skiing in winter and mountain biking in the summer. All was imagined in the heart of the village to accommodate families and provide activities for every age. The snow is present from Christmas to March and summer periods are ideal for hiking, walking and cycling.

The village consists of 11 farmers who work in organic farming since 1976, and provide the milk needed to the smallest fruit in county Jura mountains.
