    You might want to expand on details on what you are after to get a proper answer.

    Never been skiing?

    I would suggest Zermatg. It's a big resort which has everything including amazing views. Sadly I've never been there!!

    But I think you'd want a bigger resort which can capture a range of activities, a true Alpine experience, and good beginner terrain and lessons. Zermatt has all that, by reputation.

    Of the places I've actually skied i would recommend Val D'Isere, but I suspect Zermattis more picturesque

    Mind you, getting to the Copper Mountain European franchise resorts via the Nandi hub could be problematic.

    I'm a big fan of St Anton. Fun place with the best après scene in the alps if the crew wants more on the party side then ski side.

    Also a place where you can ski everything from easy to crazy.
