If you are looking for adventure sports I think Innsbruck could be a better base. Much of what you would want to do is more centrally located and easier to access via public transport from Innsbruck rather than Salzburg.

Take the train, it is easier and you both can enjoy the scenery. It only takes an extra hour or two, as well. Plus, one way drop fees and out-of-country drops (if allowed) will be pricey with a rental. And since Switzerland is involved, make that PRICEY.

I'm old school and prefer pensions over an AirBnB any day. Cost is about the same and I get breakfast included!

Travel safe.
