Outside Magazine just announced their “16 Best Places to Live in the USA: 2016” yesterday and 8 of of the 16 towns are ski towns.  Denver and Seattle are on the list, too and could be argued as ski towns, as well, but we’ll leave them out for now.

The Rocky Mountains dominated with 6 of the 8 ski towns on the list.  Colorado took 4 spots on this list.

The Pacific Northwest took the other 2 ski town spots on this list.
