I probably would stay in Zell am See. If snow conditions are still good, you can ski the "local" Schmittenhoehe. Otherwise, the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier near Kaprun (bus from Zell) has pactically year round skiing.

The Arlbertg region is probably also still a good bet. Check the "search" feature on this site under "Arlberg", "Vorarlberg" for previous commentaries.

The weekend around the 22nd of March is the 2nd Ester weekend - we will have school holidays in Austria until the beginning of the following week (until 25th). So it will be more crowded at that time, but afterwards it should be ok!

The Arlberg area will be less crowded as the skiing area is that big:
