Le Grand Bornard sits in the Aravis ski area, and is even quieter and more charming than next-door resort La Clusaz. The resort is located at a fairly low 1000m, but the 90km of slopes, served by 29 lifts, range between 1000m and 2100m. For holidaymakers that find themselves wanting to adventure outside the resort itself, there are ample opportunities: the ski pass includes access to La Clusaz, meaning you're able to ski over 220km of piste; further afield, Megeve is 17km away and so it's possible to take a day-trip.

Accommodation options including self-catered chalets in Le Grand Bornard, France
Skiing in the resort itself is limited but provides for all abilities: challenging blacks, wide and cruising reds and blues, and sunny nursery slopes all feature. Once you include La Clusaz, things open up dramatically and a great set up for beginners awaits, as well off-piste options that are worth exploring with a guide. Snowboarders will also find plenty to do in the Aravis area, particularly on the off-piste and in the snowparks. If cross-country is your thing, then Le Grand Bornard has trails in the Vallee du Bouchet and also those that head towards Le Chinaillon.
