I find each country's skiers reflect their national culture -
Swiss - highly technical, controlled and a bit restrained
Italian - totally unrestrained, fast and passionate, but the food and laughter makes up for it all...
Austrian - very friendly, warm hearted - but highly serious about skiing and, on average, the best technical skiers i have seen..
French and Nth America - afraid to say I haven't skied there
New Zealand - totally relaxed, but rugged can do, go anywhere philosophy.

decide which you like and i think you'll find the mountains to suit!

Yeah, the Austrian part of St Moritz. I consider that good. We are swiss and we often go to lungern-schönbüel for weekends but Austria is beautyfull with good ski tracks!

Italy and Austria are great and a fair bit cheaper

Niseko has been ranked the number 2 snowiest resort on the planet. It has excellent offpiste powder & tree skiing/boarding.

What Austrian part of St Moritz is that then? I went to St M Jan 2011 and as far as I recall it was all in Switzerland

yes, not near Geneva
but maybe still relevant to the OP's question (over 10 metres so far this season):






(note: but will be in Arosa next month).

Rocky Mountain's in the USA. Utah in particular, where the motto is "greatest snow on earth"! But I'm half tempted to keep it a secret...
