Moving to a ski town has its obvious benefits, but it also might give you a better chance of surviving a zombie uprising.

That’s right—you can never be too prepared.

Several ski cities located within a day trip of quality ski resorts made the top 25. They are listed below with their overall rank.

  • 2. Salt Lake City, UT
  • 4. Portland, OR
  • 5. Colorado Springs, CO
  • 10. Boise, ID
  • 12. Anchorage, AK
  • 13. Spokane, WA
  • 15. Bellevue, WA
  • 16. Vancouver, WA
  • 17. Reno, NV
  • 24. Seattle, WA

Key indicators used in the analysis were:

  • Hunting gear stores
  • Supermarkets
  • Access to “bunkers”
  • Available hospitals
  • Share of population in poor health
  • Ability to be mobile

So, grab your skis and emergency kit and get ready to rip pow and fight the undead.
