The sign is unmistakable. Naturally framed by the freshly fallen snow - and in picturesque harmony with the land around it - are the words "Grand Geneva" adorning a sizable stone bastion. Yes, it is the name of the resort. But it is just as much a statement about this pristine winter paradise you have discovered. Everything really does seem grand, from the very moment you pass through the welcoming walls of the elegant porte-cochère.
The winding road meanders tastefully through a scenic setting, just long enough to build quiet anticipation of the adventures that lie ahead in cozy seclusion.
You've arrived. This is winter on a grand scale.
