Salzkammergut or straight to Salzburg after the Engadin area

We are busy planning our first visit to Austria. We leave the Engin Valley area in Switzerland (6/7 days there) on 5 April 2016 and we have 9 days to see some of Austria. I would be so grateful for some advice. We are in our early 50's, do not do snow sports but love going up the mountains on gondalas, etc to be in the snow and enjoy views. We enjoy beautiful scenery, good food, lake trips, exploring villages and travel by public transport. We were thinking of spending time in the Salzkammergut but are wondering if the Engin Valley experience is similar and if we should rather spend more time in Salzburg and Vienna. Our initial plan was to base ourselves in Bad Isch for 4 days, Salzburg for 3 days and Vienna for 2 days but are not sure if we should be stopping in Tirol for a high mountain experience or if we should go straight to Salzburg after leaving St Moritz. We are thinking that by the time we get to Salzburg and Vienna we will be ready for exploring something different.
So sorry my questions are muddled. Any advice would be appreciated.
