Reference site for the practice of aerial sports, starting with paragliding, Le Grand-Bornand owes its international reputation to being "ideally oriented with respect to the wind, which makes it possible to go in flight in several directions, on the faces exposed to the east in the morning and to the west in the afternoon, thus opening the possibility of cross to Annecy or Chamonix ", testifies Maeva Giacometti, triple French champion of the discipline installed in Le Grand-Bornand.
