Chaux-Neuve is a village with about 200 inhabitants in the Franche-Comté region in eastern France, close to the border to Switzerland. The next bigger city is Pontarlier which is located about 30 kilometres to the Northeast. Chaux-Neuve has always been a venue dedicated to Nordic Combined.
The ski jumping facility La Côté Feuillée consists of multiple smaller training hills and one big HS118 hill where the competitions are held. As early as 1965, the construction of the ski jumping hills was started but had to be stopped for a couple of years because of problems with the earthwork operations. During the winter of 1989/90, the project was restarted and the smaller hills were completed in this winter and inaugurated with a Nordic Combined Europa-Cup. In 2010, the biggest of the old hils was restructured and transformed into a modern HS118 hill. It was officially inaugurated during a Nordic Combined World Cup in 2011.
