If there is a resort where the expression "Land of Champions" makes sense, it is in Le Grand-Bornand. The resort has thus signed the prowess to gather, on March 31, 2017, the "Legends of Ski" (Jean-Claude Killy, Marielle Goitschel, Annie Famose ...), the most beautiful French ski plateau, on the occasion of the return of the champions in Le Grand-Bornand.
