I totally agree! I just got back (I will try and put up a report this weekend, from an American perspective). HUGE thanks goes out to Wear The Fox Hat for basically giving me every tool I need to put together the trip on my own. Fox, your advice couldn't have been more spot on.
Alta and the Bird is great, and to be honest you probably stand a better chance of getting more reliable snow out there. St. Anton for me was one of the best ski experiences in my life. It's not only for the mountains, but also for the culture. I'd imagine it's probably not as fantastic for someone already from Europe, but coming over from America it's amazing how different things are in Europe.
