Top 50 French ski resorts on Facebook (on 3 Jan ’13)

At the start of 2013, which French ski resorts are making tracks on facebook?

Courchevel has made it into the top 5, more than doubling its fans since the start of October and benefiting from the women’s World Cup ski action in the resort mid-December.

Val Thorens is also showing good fan growth, closing the gap with table leader Megève and clearly benefiting from its rebranding, highlighted in this interview elsewhere recently.

But fastest climber of all is Chamonix, more than quadrupling its fans since it engaged Annecy-based digital marketing agency Switch and ran a treasure hunt competition in the streets of Paris.

Happy new year and hope it’s a lucky ’13 for y’all! Here’s the ranking at the start of the year:

Please note: these are official pages only and only those resorts are included that have at least some alpine ski uplift capacity, ie a ski lift. Sorry if I’ve missed anyone (I have found and added a few already since I first started this) 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 3rd of January.
