Le Grand Bornand is a good family ski resort and retains a fairly unspoiled French flavour. The skiing is not extreme but is varied. There are a few blacks and a lovely snow field off the top. It has a nice range of cruisey blues and reds. For beginners or those that prefer relaxing trails there are a range of nice greens as well. As with most Alpine resorts views are spectacular. They get busy like any good resort but you will be unlikely to be troubled by the long lift queues of other resorts. The snow park with piped music has been attractively developed in the last two or three years. ...

Having lived in Grand Bornand for the past 5 years I am fairly familiar with it. The skiing is fair. Great for beginners or low intermediates, but if you can ride or ski well you will soon realise that there is very little expert terrain. The lift system is good, but the attendants are pretty lazy about keeping the chair from slapping you in the back of the knees and I have frequently found them sleeping(!!!) in the liftshacks while at work.

A lovely resort, not huge but big enough and you can get a lift pass to cover La Clusaz and the rest of the Aravis if you want. Unpretentious, good skiing and also not over-priced. Not only is Le Grand Bornand village itself a nice place to stay (can recommend the Hotel Croix St. Maurice), but you can stay up the mountain in Le Chinaillon; even Annecy, a beautiful city with lots of everything is only 40 mins. drive away, If you want a European resort away from all the Brits, and like the idea of a very 'French' resort, this is it. Very picturesque, good value, not the wildest at night, compact ski area and very unpretentious. Your destination is Le Grand Bornand. ...
