Top French ski resorts on Facebook this summer

It’s back to school time – la rentrée in France – and some welcome calm is returning to the mountains. The shopkeepers and hoteliers are taking a well-earned breather and, for the rest of us, there’s still plenty of hiking and cycling to be done, but without the crowds.

It will also – very soon – be time to turn our thoughts to the approaching winter. But before that, let’s take stock of how the summer season went.

This has not been a great summer, it must be said, at least partly due to some dreadful weather. Three out of five professionals in mountain and lake areas in Rhone Alpes judged the frequentation of their establishments insufficient, Rhone Alpes Tourism reports.

On social media, the numbers were down too. The average fan growth of the top 50 French ski resorts on Facebook June through August was 3.7% (excluding special case, Orcières, see below), which compares to 6% for the same period last year (excluding another special case, Alpe d’Huez, which merged pages last July).

That said, a few resorts did rather well this summer, despite the challenging conditions. Check out the top five by Facebook fan growth June-August:

  1. Chamonix (+25%)
  2. Cauterets (+18%)
  3. Le Grand Bornand (+17%)
  4. La Clusaz (+17%)
  5. Les 2 Alpes (+9%)

No surprise to see Chamonix up there and Cauterets in the Pyrenees also always does well. The Aravis resorts, La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, seem to be making a strong play – and a successful one – for summer business, with family festivals, summer press trips and more. And Les 2 Alpes has amazing summer skiing on its glacier of course.

Here are a few of the most engaging posts from around the French mountains this summer:

Meanwhile Orcières has rebranded from Orcières 1850 to Orcières Merlette 1850, taking back the Merlette name it used to be also known by. In so doing it has merged two Facebook pages and jumped up to  21 in the rankings (from 31).

And now for the numbers… Here are all the scores, as recorded on 1 September 2014:

Top French ski resorts on Facebook (on 4 August ’14)

It has been an odd summer so far weather-wise, and it seems to have cast a bit of a damper on social media activity around the major French mountain resorts.

Fan growth of the top 50 French ski resorts on Facebook averaged just 1.6% in July, compared to 3.1% in July last year.

Only four resorts grew their likes by more than 5% in the month.

Cauterets (+12%) showed off its sunshine at every opportunity:

In Chamonix (+11%), if it’s cloudy, you can always climb a bit higher:

Meanwhile the two main Aravis resorts, La Clusaz (+6.5%) and Le Grand Bornand (+6.2%) continue to pursue the family summer market and hosted the Aravis & Cies family festival:

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.

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

Mountain resorts like the one I live in are quite literally buzzing in May with building work and general preparations for summer. But tourism-wise, it is a low point and that showed on social media: the average fan growth of the top 50 French ski resorts on Facebook dropped to 0.9%, almost the same as this time last year.

Among those that generated above-average activity, the common theme was getting ready for summer which, in the case of Le Grand Bornand (+6.3%), meant driving the cows up to the alpage…

…for La Clusaz (+3.5%) meant opening its Via Ferrata…

…and for Les 2 Alpes (+3.3%) meant getting its glacier ready for summer skiing:

Meanwhile Les Carroz merged two pages and jumped 56% to 51st place in the rankings:

Top 50 French ski resorts on Facebook (on 1 October 2013)

A dusting of snow across in September heralded the start of autumn in the Alps. But it was not quite enough to quicken the social media pulse and the average monthly fan growth rate of the top 50 French mountain resorts on Facebook slowed further, to 1.7% in September, from 2.0% in August and 3.1% in July.

A few resorts charged ahead anyway, notably these five:

  1. Les Contamines (+21.4%)
  2. Chamonix (+10.4%)
  3. Le Grand Bornand (+7.8%)
  4. Serre Chevalier (+7.4%)
  5. Vars (+6.4%)

And snow did seem to be the common thread in their most engaging posts:

Le Grand Bornand also makes the most of it

Meanwhile a handful of resorts lost fans, including at least one ( Le Dévoluy ) that had run a competition during the summer, evidence once again that money can’t buy you love.

Top 50 French ski resorts on Facebook (on 1 August 2013)

Summer is in full swing and Facebook activity is ticking up for French mountain resorts: the average monthly fan growth rate for the top 50 in July rose to 3.1%, from 1.4% in June.

Just over 3%, that is, excluding this month’s special case, Alpe d’Huez, which quadrupled its likes early in July by merging two pages: one, its official ‘official’ Facebook page (with some 6,100 likes) and the other, an apparently unofficial ‘official’ one with over 19,000.

The move was spotted at the time and thoroughly reported by Ski Benchmark’s Jérôme Folliet here (in French). Late July, however, the page went offline because of some ‘technical issues’ and still was at the time of writing this, but it is due back up shortly.

A handful of other resorts in the top 50 stand out for their well above-average fan growth rate in July.

First off: Val d’Isère, which has been running a ‘instant win’ competition in the run-up to the Coupe de France MTB event there on 24-25 August.  Its likes got an instant lift and were up 37% for the month, and climbing.

Le Dévoluy has a competition underway too and its likes were up nearly 9%.

Cauterets was also up just under 9%, happy to be out from under the deluge of earlier this spring and showing off its assets in the sunshine, including the Pont d’Espagne, a photo of which got an astonishing 3,400-odd likes and over 500 shares:

Screen Shot 2013-08-01 at 6.17.31 PM

It also ran the Trophée de Vignemale trail race and posted a strikingly good photo of the winner which got rather fewer likes, but deserves more.

Le Grand Bornand meanwhile added nearly 8% more likes as it made the most of hosting a Tour de France stage finish. And Chamonix is still climbing steadily, up 7.5% in July.

Here’s the ranking in full, as recorded on the 1st of August:

Top 50 French ski resorts on Facebook (on 2 July 2013)

Guess who grew their Facebook fans the most in June among French ski resorts?

Le Grand Bornand. Its likes were up just over 10% for the month, compared to an average of just 1.4% for all the top 50.

Why, or rather, how? No, it didn’t run a competition, but it did kick off an initiative at the end of May offering to help the resort’s businesses and service providers raise their game on social media, including workshops and one-on-one support. Smart idea, and the first session in early June coincided with a surge in Facebook likes and engagement.

Others that beat the average in June did run contests, including Châtel, up over 6%, and – among the ski domains – Haute Maurienne Vanoise, which jumped 43% to nearly 13,000 fans now.

Chamonix remains the stand-out though for consistent growth and engagement. People talking about this was above 1,000 for most of the month and fan growth was over 6%.

Other random facts from the research this month:

  • six resorts lost likes on Facebook in June
  • a few still have a winter scene as their timeline cover photo (you know who you are…)
  • Les 2 Alpes just hit the 20,000 likes milestone as I write this…
