Top 50 French ski resorts on Facebook (on 2 May 2013)

Average fan growth of the top 50 French ski resorts on Facebook slowed to 1.5% in April, as many resorts pulled the plug on winter and took a welcome inter-season breather.

Only two resorts saw double-digit fan growth: Val d’Isère (up 11%) and Sainte Foy (up 15%), both of which ran competitions that continued into April.  A few resorts have even lost some fans.

So it will be interesting to see who keeps the buzz going best as summer approaches, and how. As it stands, quite a few resorts haven’t even changed their timeline cover photos yet…

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 2nd of May.
