Which ski resorts in Eastern Austria would one recommend? It seems the majority of recommended Austrian ski resorts are on the Western side of the country. However, we're traveling by car from Budapest, and in our wish to keep the drive under four hours, wish to stick with Eastern Austria. Flying is not an option. Also, with English-instruction on learning how to snowboard would be a plus. One of us is very well versed with skiing resources in France, but when it comes to Austria we are clueless!

Since we're starting off from Budapest, we were open to anywhere within four hours of driving. We were also considering Slovenia, but everything online seems to edge us towards Austria... so here we are today. We've looked on the internet, and this is what comes up but nothing very concrete as a clear recommendation versus the overwhelming volume of resources for Western Austria:
Hebalm <-- seems only in German on their website
Novog <-- also only in Geman
... any others?
Even though the old metafilter threads make it out to be a daunting experience, we're looking to learn how to snowboard for the first time. One very experienced French skier, and one American who knows NOTHING about winter sports.
- places which would easily have private English instruction of how to snowboard.
- if there are any recommendations for nearby nicer or higher-end hotels to relax (for the aftermath of recovering from falling-on-face a billion times from learning how to snowboard)
