There's a reason that some of us always recommend St. Anton. Actually, there are a few.
1. You can get there directly by train from Zurich, which has a good number of trans-Atlantic flights to choose from. So, it's easy to get to.
2. It's a nice town with plenty of stuff to do off the mountain.
3. It's got great terrain and a huge amount of it.
4. It's got a good snow record.
Most people asking for advice are skiing Europe for the first time, and it's hard to find a better combination of convenience, size, atmosphere, and snow.
