Ski area openning from 1st snow until April, 22nd 2019 (depending on snow conditions).
In the footsteps - or rather tracks, of Olympic medalists Roddy Darragon or Sylvie Becaert, cross-country skiing in Le Grand-Bornand allows you to enjoy up-close the terrain they skied on to train. In the Bouchet Valley and in the upper part of Chinaillon near the old village, cross-country skiing is king.
