Winter at Chalet d'Or

Skiing at Le Grand Bornand is a fantastic family friendly experience, with 43 pistes (3 black, 14 red, 16 blue and 10 green) giving a total of 90km of pistes. In addition, there is a fabulous snowpark featuring half pipe, boarder cross and parallel jumps all with music too! Once a week there is nocturnal skiing under floodlights for the indefatigueable.

Chalet d'Or from the piste

Chalet d'Or is perfectly situated right in the heart of this ski domain. We are at the TOP of the Joyere bubble lift, so whilst the crowds are queuing to get up to our altitude we are already skiing down! With the ski piste 10 metres away from the door, you have the convenience of stepping from your slippers directly into your ski boots for a true ski-in and ski-out experience.

Chalet d'Or is ideal for families with younger children and with first time skiers, the pistes adjacent to the chalet are graded green with easy button lifts. These runs are visible from inside the chalet, so if you fancy a lazy start the kids can do a couple of runs whilst you plan the day. In fact, the location of the chalet is so fantastic that you can pop back any time you need a snack, a change, a drink or indeed a rest - With us there is no need to carry bulky backpacks whilst you try to ski!

The chalet is perched above a picturesque forest

In the evenings when the pistes are closed, Chalet d'Or is at its most special. Starlight on pristine snowfields, no roads for vehicle pollution, above the bustle of the valley and no neighbours give you that special tranquilty of being in total harmony with nature.

For the off-piste adventurer, the great secret of Le Grand Bornand is that you can ski almost the whole mountain! Beneath the snow, the ground is largely grass covered pastures, which means that the first decent snowfall of the season allows you to start venturing off-piste. For your first time off piste, we can arrange a guide if you want.



From our experience we can show you the best places to ski and the coziest mountain restaurants. We can advise on local issues and we can arrange that special extra, whether it is Paragliding above the ski slopes, snowshoeing by moonlight, sledging the unbroken snow slopes adjacent to the chalet or even igloo building if it takes your fancy!

Fun after the pistes close!

We will ensure your stay is as cosy and comfortable as possible. Breakfast, afternoon tea and three course evening meal with wine are provided during your stay. In addition, we encourage you to benefit from the fantastic, on-the-piste location of the chalet, by suggesting you meet here for lunch if you so desire. After all, staying with us is just like having your very own mountain restaurant!
