Grand Bornand Village is a french ski resort located in the Aravis massif, at 1000 meters.
With its onion dome church, its grenette (covered market place) and its charming square, resort downtown has choosen tradition as a trademark.
Residential districts spread along the valley. They are mainly made of chalets with tavaillons (wood tile roof), Solaret (opened balcony), pointe d'anes... those French Savoie architectural specificities are so nice to contemplate.
Grand Bornand Village is linked to ski area by 2 gondolas (Rosay and Joyere).
Ski return is made with one red ski run called Envers. However, beginners will prefer going back to the resort when ski day is finished with gondolas.
No accommodation are close to the ski runs. A free shuttle service linked districts to ski lifts departure in a few minutes
We can't hide it, we really love Grand Bornand ski area!

Ski area Grand Bornand Village
- Annes pass area, great to learn ski in lovely surroundings.
- Skipass prices, affordable
- Modern ski equipments
We do not like...
- Duche chairlift, one of the last ski area leak.
- Return to Grand Bornand Village with Envers ski run. Often bad snow quality and not great for beginners.
