The Western part of the United States offers a multitude of great downhill skiing areas. I have skied in Colorado and Utah. I found Utah to be an awesome ski vacation for many reasons. One major benefit is that you can stay in Salt Lake City, Utah and have access to several ski resorts in the area. There are a bunch of great ski resorts all within very close proximity to Salt Lake City. Great ski resorts include Snowbird, Alta, Deer Valley, Park City, the Canyons, and Solitude. Deer Valley is a little more pricey then the rest and it is a favorite of many celebrities. Park City is where they held the 2002 Winter Olympics and is a great place to visit. The ski resorts are easily accessible by highway. You can literally ski at a new ski resort every day of your trip. Plus, the ski resorts in Utah were not as crowded as they are in Colorado. This is a very nice feature because you don't have to wait in any lift lines! Also New Zealand can prove to be a great get away, especially in the summer in the northern hemisphere as it is peak ski season in New Zealand at that time. Many professionals travel to New Zealand to train during the northern hemispheres summer so you can rest assured that it is a quality establishment. Recommended resorts are Treble Cone in Wanaka (south Island) for truly steep and awesome runs, Remarkables in Queenstown (south island again) for off piste or heli skiing and Coronet Peak for general skiing (Queenstown again). Only problem is that New Zealand can be a bit of a distance from some parts of the world but can be truly awesome if you take the time to explore it.

In Europe, the best ski resorts are found in the Alps. In the French Alps, the most popular resorts are Chamonix and Val D'Isere, while Portes du Soleil on the border between France and Switzerland is, in fact, the biggest connected ski area in the world. Austria also has several great resorts. Further north in Europe, Norway is your best bet.
