Ideas for New Years Eve in Winter / Mountain Setting?

Hello,

Does anyone have any suggestions for where to find something winter-y and nice for New Year's Eve?

Perhaps something within a couple of hours of Zurich?

Perhaps some restaurants or huts in the countryside doing a Silvester special?

Or perhaps an overnight or spa special for that evening?

Or perhaps some mountain community lively around midnight?

Open to anything festive.

Even though it's late to book, I am optimistic we can find something.

This year will be one day shy of a full moon. A few new year's ago, we were in Grindelwald for the new year's eve street festivities on a clear night with a full moon and the way the light bounced off the snow and lit everything up was absolutely magical.

Any thoughts welcome.

Go by train to Hôtel du Lac in Villars - owned by James and his wife, British. Nice mix of rustic and modern, great food- 300m from train station at the top- then spend the day in Montreux or the great spa at Lavey les Bains.

In the same boat - a few options:

Zermatt which I heard is pretty good (but on the expensive side). The offer of going by train and spending the night in Brig (way cheaper than Zermatt) could be an alternative.

Zurich thought about doing it in the thermal bad

Did the Silvester party combined with a few nights' overnight stay at Engelberg Trübsee a few years back. Would definitely recommend this but could be too late for this year unfortunately...
