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

With skiing possible in France as of this Saturday, thoughts are starting to turn towards winter: on social media and in my head, for sure, as I sit here at my desk.

Among the top 50 French ski resorts on Facebook, those that saw the most action are starting to talk – and picture – SNOW.

More specifically, the top three by fan growth in September all had something else in common:

La Plagne (+12%)…

Le Lioran (+3%)…

La Clusaz (+3%)…

Yes, we love to see our resorts making improvements for our skiing pleasure.

Average fan growth for the whole top 50 in September was just 1%, down from 1.7% this time last year, so let it snow and let’s get some more buzz going!
