Crozet is nestled at the foot of the Jura mountains in eastern France several miles from the Swiss city of Geneva and approximately from the French city of Lyon. It is also near the Genève-Cointrin airport.
Its chief attraction is a cable car which carries hikers to the top of the Jura during the summer and serves a small ski resort during the winter. It has several sporting clubs: the St-Genis-Ferney-Crozet sporting association (soccer), a tennis club, and a ski club. Other places of interest include the remains of the château de Rossillon, a church (reconstructed around 1830), the Crozet forest, and the Monts-Jura ski station.
