Top 30 French ski resorts on Twitter (on 1 October ’13)

No pre-season lull over on Twitter: average follower growth for the top 30 French ski resorts even rose slightly, to 4.6% in September, from 4.1% in August.

Tignes pulled off double-digit growth again (+10.9%), the only resort in the top 30 to do so as it gets ready to re-open for glacier skiing on 12 October.

Les Contamines (+9.7%) meanwhile continues to punch above its weight, attracting attention:

It experimented with appointing web ambassadors last year (I was one) and is about to announce a new bunch so I guess it must be pleased with how that initiative has gone.

Third for follower growth in September was Chamonix (+8.4%), still gaining on Val Thorens but not top of the charts yet.
