La Ferme de Florent, Le Grand Bornand, Aravis Ski Area
Summary
For those of you who have skied North America, the resort resembles
that rather than the tight narrow runs to be found in many Austrian
resorts. There is also an extensive snow park with jumps from green to
black, rails, half pipe and 2 skier cross tracks
Description
The Grand Bornand ski area is set in the stunning Aravis mountains. If
you stay in Grand Bornand itself you will have to get a bubble lift up to
Chinaillon for the skiing. If you stay in Chinaillon itself you have easy
access to 90km of skiing ranging from cruising greens to one of the
steepest blacks in Europe. Most of the pistes are very wide and the resort
is ideal for families due to the variety of slopes and ease of access.
There is also plenty of challenging off piste which we will be happy to
show you, snow permitting! Included in the Aravis ski pass is La Clusaz
with 120km of piste, this is within easy reach should you want more
variety.

All the slopes are groomed every night, apart from the blacks which
become very challenging after a good dump of snow. This means that
there area always some lovely wide groomed slopes for intermediates
and those who want to avoid bumps.
