Le Grand Bornand itself is very low and runs back to the village are vulnerable in warm weather.

 

Fortunately most of the skiing takes place above the satellite village of Le Chinaillon, where snow cover is more reliable. Overall, altitudes are still modest though (as in neighbouring La Clusaz), and snow quality is variable.
