Skiing Le Grand Bornand

The "Pearl of the Aravis Mountains," nestled between Lake Annecy and Mont Blanc, Le Grand-Bornand plays a skillful balancing act between two extremes - on the one hand an authentic mountain village with 400 historic chalets and on the other hand part of the select Club TOTFA (Top of the French Alps), a label grouping the 15 most prestigious winter sports destinations in France. Le Grand-Bornand asserts itself through a dynamic events schedule that sets the standard for others to follow (Au Bonheurs des Mômes kids' festival, Glisse en Coeur, regularly hosting the Tour de France). The combined alpine (more than 90 km of runs) and Nordic (43 km) ski areas, outfitted with high-end facilities such as a snow park frequently referred to as one of the most spectacular in the French Alps, make it a highly desired resort by both those looking for great skiing and those seeking more pensive pursuits.
