The arty way to ski!

Among the most beautiful resorts in the French Alps, on the superb Aravis range background, Le Grand-Bornand offers you the most beautiful natural land art and an inimitable setting. It's up to you to invent the ski that goes with it! A great ski village, Le Grand-Bornand has something to satisfy lovers of contemplative and sports skiing. Among other highlights, the famous Dénivel'Maxx and its 3 km long for 1100m non-stop drop. Unless you prefer the sequence of the four black slopes ... to heat your thighs! To complete the picture, Le Grand-Bornand offers you on certain dates a unique chance to extend the pleasure of skiing by one hour and to enjoy the spectacle of the sunset on the slopes and to offer at the same time a last descent in a stunning atmosphere.
At Le Grand-Bornand, art is (also) in the air!

The station vibrates with intense creativity specific to the artists who live there. Evidenced by the "Grandborama" project: 55 new comfort cabins, 110 original works, 500 hours of work ... unique creation made on the basis of the photographic archive of the resort, "Grandborama" reveals the history of Le Grand-Bornand enjoying replacement of the old cabins of the Rosay gondola.
An unprecedented project and a remarkable feat by asking the artists gathered under the direction of the painter Pierre Amoudry to proceed with the "arty" dressing of the cabins, thus creating a new art gallery as pleasant to watch that to...use (8 seats identified, installed in a crown around the entire perimeter of the cabin offering a "living room effect" and an optimized surface allowing the reception of 2 more people at times of affluence). The other originality of the project consists in its implementation by a collective of young artists / graphers and performers born in Le Grand-Bornand, "Doka Productions", already at work on the famous "Cow art course".

Iconic and popular, this work of artistic performance now comes in the form of a beautiful book edited by the collective of artists Bornandins "Doka Productions", available from the official store Le Grand-Bornand Tourism for 35 €.
An après-ski unique in the world, evolutionary, arty and shifted as possible, the "Cow art course" allows walkers to enjoy hundreds of works - paintings and sculptures - permanently installed throughout the village, maintained and regularly renewed by professional and amateur artists from around the world. This is a genuine open-air art gallery providing a new, off-the-wall vision of Le Grand-Bornand’s ruminating star, paying homage to a tutelary figure of Le Grand-Bornand agro-pastoralism, the cow. Indispensable for the production of farmhouse reblochon, a herd of 2000 cows people farms opening their doors to visitors, outside of the last Reblochon market animating Wednesdays bornandins. An institution dating from 1795!
More about cow art

Cultivating the charm of its bicentennial chalets, the authenticity of its village life and the strength of its human encounters, allied to the avant-garde of a new chic arty, Le Grand-Bornand maintains a lifestyle combining tradition and pioneering spirit, linked in a learned alchemy. An invitation for any hedonist to revisit his classics, between passionate craftsmen and secret addresses to die for ... like the workshops of the saddler Didier Perrillat, and potters Edith and Patrick Martin. Each in its own way perpetuates, in the den of ancient buildings and by the fireside, ancestral know-how with leather work for the first, and the work of Savoyard masters for the seconds. With the risk of leaving it laden with beautiful and trendy objects of folk art.
Le Grand-Bornand surprises by playing a singular and willingly addictive score, between remarkable landscapes, resolutely sporty spirit and sublimated authenticity.
