Top 30 French ski resorts on Twitter at the start of 2014

The 3 Valleys stood out for Twitter activity in December. It made the most of opening early and took over from the Portes du Soleil as the leading French ski domain on Twitter. At the same time, Méribel leapt into the top 30, growing its followers 29% in a month.

Alpe d’Huez was also active (+17%), exhorting followers to vote for it as Best European Ski Resort 2014, apparently to good effect (it came in 3rd), and enjoying a Folie Douce lift as well:

Outside the top 30, Samoëns is getting up to speed on Twitter and nearly doubled its followers in December to over 200, after signing up only last October.

Average follower growth for all the top 30 French ski resorts on Twitter rose to 9.4% from 10.3% in November.
