The ski area in 10 essentials

In the top league of the major French ski resorts, Le Grand-Bornand boasts 86 km of alpine ski slopes, punctuated by state-of-the-art equipment (snowpark for all levels, secure freeride area, timed slalom stadium, night skiing, etc.) combined with a Nordic domain that regularly hosts the French Biathlon World Cup round. The diversity of difficulty levels evolving at almost 360° around Mount Lachat, and the concern to open the most beautiful spaces and panoramas, including for intermediate level skiers, make it a popular playground for sports glide enthusiasts and lovers of a more contemplative skiing.

skiing, yes... but arty!

Grand-Bornand offers a unique opportunity to extend the pleasure of skiing by one hour every Saturday from January 25 to March 28, as well as every evening during the 2020 winter holiday. The principle: enjoy the sunset show at an altitude of 2100m, the highlight of your skiing day, and enjoy a last descent in a stunning atmosphere... The other benefit of the operation consists in staggering the returns to the valley, thus limiting the congestion of the roads to keep intact the capital "happiness" of his day skiing! Please note: the creation of a special ski pass "Sunset", valid from 3pm on the dates concerned by the operation.
An intensified experience

From winter 2019/2020, by the new detachable chairlift of Le Charmieux, which extends the illuminated runway every Tuesday in winter, as well as on Thursdays during school holidays.

In addition to its free practice - within the limits of the safety conditions specific to any practice in the natural environment - it is possible to try out ski touring along the secure routes set up along the alpine ski slopes. Grand-Bornand offers three signposted routes offering a breathtaking view of the Aravis mountain range. With free access, only one of the routes - "La Joyère / Le Chenu" - requires the use of a transport ticket to access the upper station of the La Joyère cable car, the starting point of this tour.
