I doubt there will be snow in the town of Zurich in early March - but of course you never can predict the weather. There hasn't been any snow the last couple years in March that I recall.
The closest hill with sledding runs that I am aware of, with sled rentals, is Zugerberg (near Zug). There are several hills around Zurich (Uetliberg) with Sledding trails but none of them offer rentals that I am aware of. I don't know if there would be any snow even on those hills in March - they are both under 1000 meters in height.
Have a look at our what to do page for Zurich so you can have some back up plans. A Lake cruise might be a good option. As would the Wildnis Park Sihlwald (about 30/35 minutes from Zurich by train). It is free and essentially a huge Zoo in the forest with large enclosures for bears, Lynx, wolves, deer, elk etc. The kids would love it. https://wildnispark.ch /parkbesuch/ There isn't an English version but Google Chrome does a good job translating it.
There is of course the proper Zurich Zoo (https://www.zoo.ch/en) as well which is only 15 or 20 minutes by tram from downtown Zurich
