Top 30 French ski resorts on Twitter (on 3 April ’13)

Over on Twitter, top action came from two French resorts holding freestyle events in March. The X Games was of course the big one, and Tignes PR Girls were busy birds, tweeting regularly and attracting more than 40% more followers over the month.

Not to be overlooked though is Vars (+12.5%), which held the first ever Vars Tournament  right after the X Games, attracting top riders. There was plenty of buzz on Twitter, fuelled by Vars itself which tweeted frequent updates on the results.

It sure looks like Twitter is a good channel for resorts to engage with their freestyle rider communities.

Chamonix, Peyragudes and Piau in the top 30 also saw 10%+ follower growth in March and Meribel continues to climb rapidly, up another 31% this past month to over 170 followers since it launched its account in February.
