The resort of Le Grand Bornand has largely invested for several years to accommodate and attract a family audience with some expectations closely linked to the world of disability.
With the law of 11 February 2005 " for the equality of rights and opportunities, participation and citizenship of disabled persons " which requires providers tourism and leisure to take into account accessibility by 2015, the station Grand-Bornand progressively engages in this demarche. Handiski Club Loisirs is the privileged interlocutor both in the town, as the tourist office or the company of ski lifts.
Today mentalities change and good initiatives are beginning to implement. While overall dynamics is launched, the task is still very important and do not always take into account the entire chain of accessibility even on a tourist region : accessibility to the city, the networks of transport, the services, the accommodation, the tourist activities... of architectural Layouts to use guide.
Do not forget that we are all potentially with disabilities, parents with strollers, the foreign tourists who do not speak our language, seniors with cumulative disability situations, a delivery man with his truck and take... into account this diversity allows improvements and works beneficial to the entire population, guaranteeing ease of use for all.
Take the example of Tandemski today increasingly interested the clientele of older or non-skiers and little people comfortable with the mountain environment. The denomination " Taxi skiing " is so commonly used.
