I'll be travelling down to Italy in December. We normally do a couple of days in Chiesa (Valmalenco) and a couple of days in Madesimo. However, given that this year 28-29 December fall on a weekend (they're the days we'd normally spend in Chiesa), I fear that the resort may be super full. Also, they often close a run (or two) for skiclubs so I was thinking to maybe stop somewhere en route. Andermatt is just before the St Gothard tunnel and it's definitely a possiblity. It seems quite a nice resort, but it's probably going to be rather expensive.
I saw that Meiringen is a bit up the road and was wondering if anybody has been there and what's it like. I am not interested in apres-ski, we're just looking for somewhere nice, not too busy (as quiet as it can be, given the time of the year) to spend a couple of days. (On piste only).
thank you all

Nothing but bars at night and the main lift was a walk from the centre but once on the lifts upto a central hub, the lifts fan out quite nicely.
I had nice snow with top ups so the whole area was skiable. I always thought it worth a revisit if you tagged it onto a road trip.
Andermatt is also good but has changed massively these last few years. If you get guidance then you'll get off the beaten track.
