Not possible -- if you often skip it, I'd suggest removing it from  
the snippet (IMHO many of the HTML snippets carry too many  
attributes). If you skip it 50% of the time, you could change the  
snippet into this:

    <img src="$1" alt="$2"${3: class=""} />

That way, when you leave the alt-attribute, you can either do delete  
+ tab to remove and leave snippet, or do arrow right + arrow left to  
get caret in between the quotes. That's currently the best way to  
deal with optional arguments in snippets.
