Top 50 French ski resorts on Facebook (Oct ’12)

As this blog is focused mainly (but not exclusively) on French ski resorts, I thought I’d do count of Facebook fans, not just for the top 10, but as completely as possible.

Partly, it’s because I’m interested in how things are going for the smaller resorts, although quite a few of them, it turns out, are actually quite high up the list. Cauterets at number 10? There are some pretty surprising results in there – to me at least – which I hope to look into further over time.

Just to get the fine print out of the way: these are official pages only (some resorts have unofficial pages with more likes) and based on the list of destinations on France Montagnes, including only those resorts that have at least some alpine ski uplift capacity, ie a ski lift. Sorry if I’ve missed anyone and please let me know so this list can be improved for next month. Linked resorts/domains like the 3 Valleys are ranked separately and the count was done on the 1st of October. So here goes:
