There are many ways in which Austria will delight you in your ski holiday by car rental.  Their slopes are well laid out and they have no shortage of modern and efficient mountain facilities, including pleasantly paced lifts without lines and pristine pistes that aren't over crowded.  The nightlife is diverse with enough to entertain the tastes of most any partier.  In fact, some of Austria's resorts are renown particularly for their apres, and if you like to party as hard as you ski you should check out resorts like St Anton, Ischgl, Saalbach, and Kitzbuhel.

On the flip side, Austria is not known for it's challenging terrain.  It does, however, have excellent facilities for beginners and intermediate skiers will find plenty of challenges on the slopes of any Austrian resort.  It also has a tendency to melt out early at many of its mid-altitude resorts, meaning the beginning of the Winter ski season is the really the best time to visit Austria by car rental.
