Diary of a ski trip: Le Grand Bornand/Chinaillon

Le Grand Bornand, about an hour from Geneva Airport, is perfect for a family ski holiday. There are plenty of green runs and nursery slopes, and easy rope pulls and short drag lifts for the children.

New this year is Les Myrtilles – blueberries – which runs from the top of Le Maroly chairlift right back into Chinaillon, one of the smaller towns in the Grand Bornand region of the French Alps.
