Top 50 French ski resorts on Facebook (1 Dec ’14)

Winter is here… sort of. It promised well a couple of weeks ago after a snowstorm blanketed social media with glorious images of fresh powder and even fresh tracks for a while. But since then… nothing much.

Average fan growth for the top 50 French ski resorts on Facebook ticked up to just over 8% in November, from under 2% in October. Only four in the top 50 did better than that, however.

Val d’Isère is the stand-out story this month, growing its fans by a third to leapfrog into fourth spot. Fresh snowfall, the promise of early opening and the Criterium de 1ere Neige all boosted its buzz.

Then there’s the hackathon it is running all this week to develop a new resort app – high-concept, high-profile, ‘the highest hackathon in the world’:

Elsewhere, Risoul has had a makeover on social media and popped up this month in 41st spot, just in time to take advantage of the new snow:

Ditto Val Cenis, which jumped to 44th:

Le Lioran was the only other resort reporting above-average growth (+9%), after it launched a new, responsive website:

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 December.
