Top 30 French ski resorts on Twitter (2 June ’14)

There were two changes in top five French ski resorts on Twitter in May.

Chamonix (+4%) overtook Val Thorens to take second spot behind Megève. Chamonix typically doesn’t slow down as much as other resorts in the inter-season and, in town the other day, it was easy to see why: while people are sunning themselves at café tables in t-shirts and shorts, others are walking past off the Montenvers train in full ski gear with skis on their shoulders. There’s not much inter-season in Chamonix.

Meantime Alpe d’Huez (+11%) overtook Val d’Isère to sneak fourth place (up from 19th at the start of the year). It continues to trade on its reputation in the cycling world and is gearing up for the mega Dutch charity event in early June, Alpe d’HuZes.

Megève, by the way, shed followers for the third month in a row, down another 120 or 1.4% in May from its Twitter Card-induced high.

Average follower growth for the whole top 30 on Twitter dropped to 2.4% in May, from 3.1% in April.
