In the ski area of Grand Bornand, located in the French département of Haute-Savoi, winter sports enthusiasts can expect almost 90 kilometres of varied pistes of all levels of difficulty. Furthermore, the numerous lifts ensure a stress-free day of skiing without annoying waiting times.

As you can see from the layout of the slopes, the area is more suitable for amateurs and beginners with its predominantly easy to intermediate slopes. These slopes promise cosy mountain skiing combined with a magnificent mountain panorama reminiscent of postcards.

However, advanced winter sports enthusiasts are also catered for with challenging mogul pistes, which will show you whether you need a few more hours practising on the red pistes - a challenge.

The resort itself is more geared towards families, as you can see from the alternative leisure options. Here you will find tobogganing and ice skating rinks, indoor swimming pools and steam baths as well as day-care centres for the little ones. Accordingly, the offer for night owls is rather small, but those who are not afraid of bus journeys will find exactly what they are looking for in the neighbouring village.
