Jura mountains is a long stretch of mountains that starts way inside France and ends in NE part of Switzerland with a small part inside Germany too.
If the word Jura doesn’t ring any bell you will be surprised to know that it named the Jurassic era (the geologic period from the end of Triassic to beginning of Cretaceous) dominating the end of the dinosaurs that was replaced by the Age of Reptiles.
According to Wikipedia the name "Jura" is derived from juria, a Latinized form of a celtic stem jor- (forest). What’s more at Jura mountains limestone strata from that period was first identified.
Many people use Crozet as a base to go hiking to the mountains, during the winter there are ski resorts. At Crozet there’s a cable car that carries people to the top of JuraRelated to:

I didn’t spend much time in Crozet as I was sightseeing Geneva during the day but it was interesting to wake up every morning by some ducks that were coming to drink water from the small lake that was in front of the house! They were there every single day at 5.15am!
What’s more it was amazing to see 4 different seasons in 4 days! Check pics 1-2 and then pics 3-4 that were taken the next day!!!
I didn’t see many locals around, it seems most of them were at work or they just don’t show, hopefully I met with some friendly dogs and the ducks in the lake! :)

Crozet is located 18km WN from Geneva, 14km from Geneva International airport, 8km from CERN, 72km from Lausanne.
From Geneva I took tram 18 (from the Cornavin train station) and got off at CERN (end of line 18). A friend of mine works at Cern so we just drove to Crozet.
It seems there is no public transport in/out of Crozet so a car is the only option (or maybe an expensive taxi ride).
The closest you can get by public transport from Geneva is Sergy village, 4km from Crozet (tram 16 to Avanchets and then bus Y from Avanchets)
