An art of living the mountain. Differently, fully. Those who like to contemplate find in its preserved valleys the rare luxury of a restorative retreat, while those who love excitement benefit from dynamic events regularly cited as a reference with the organisation this winter of a new French round of the World Cup Biathlon, from 12th to 17th December, and of the 11th edition of Glisse en Coeur. Glisse en Coeur is the No. 1 charitable event of the French mountain region collected by thousands of skiers, celebrities and anonymous donors invested over the editions presented to associations working for children, will be run on 23rd, 24th and 25th of March for the benefit of the Thelma for Anna association.

With 86km Alpine ski slopes including 16 green, 13 blue, 16 red and 4 black pistes, Le Grand-Bornand has everything it needs to treat anyone who likes chilled-out skiing or adrenalin winter sports. One of the hotspots is the famous 3km long “Dénivel’Maxx” with 1100m vertical descent that runs non-stop from the top of Le Lachat to Grand-Bornand Village. A skier’s dream that switches between gliding along with a view and twisting between trees and old chalets past the final and spectacular red Envers turn… unless you’d prefer to get those thighs burning with three black slopes in a row (Sonnerie, Pylônes and Lachat)!
