As in France, some of the largest followings on Facebook are not for individual resorts, but for regions – Dachstein, Zillertal and Wildschonau all make it to the top ten, with the Ski Amade region sitting just outside in 11th place.

Official pages only
Please note that these are the ‘Official’ Facebook pages – as referred to from the official resort websites.  In many cases there are more popular Facebook pages for each resort, but they are (as far as we can tell) independent of the resort.  We looked at the 23 top resorts in Austria when compiling this list.


Please feel free to correct us on any of the above. Just drop us a line.  No research is perfect – all we can say is that if we couldn’t find any pages, then they should be marketed better!
