General information

The traditional ski village of Le Grand Bornand is situated at the foot of the Mont Lachat. Le Grand Bornand is a peaceful and atmospheric ski village with a traditional village centre where stables and wooden farm houses stand as a pleasant contrast to the modern accommodations in the area.

the village is subdivided over two levels: Le Grand Bornand Village (1000 m) and Le Chinaillon (1300 m). This is not the place for high rise construction. Instead, quaint wooden chalets dominate the landscape.

For snowboarders there is a halfpipe and a boardercross. Cross country skiers can enjoy approximately 55 kilometers of diverse cross country skiing tracks. There are plenty of options for hikers in the area as well.

After skiing or snowboarding you can relax in one the lovely restaurants, have a drink in a bar or try your luck at ice skating or sleighing.

The modern ski village of La Clusaz is located approximately 6 kilometers down the road from the village of Grand Bornand Village.
You could venture onto the pistes from here as well for a change.
