Top French ski resorts on Facebook (on 1 July ’14)

Midsummer’s eve has been and gone, so the nights are drawing in and we are heading towards next winter already.

In the meantime, mountain resorts are in full-up summer mode and for some, it shows on Facebook more than for others.

The top 50 French ski resorts on Facebook grew their fans just 1.1% on average in June, up slightly from 0.9% in May. But a few resorts did a lot better.

Chamonix (+10%) hit 60k fans this month, helped by a competition sponsored by Asics to promote its Outrun The Sun event. The following weekend, the Skyrunning World Championships came to town:

The Aravis resorts seem have got off to a good start this summer, with both La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand up just over 5% in June:

Les Arcs (+5%) was the only other resort up by 5% or more in June.

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 1 July.
