Hi MrRogers, and welcome to MySwissAlps!
I would book now. High season in the alps starts just before Christmas. Places like Zermatt and the villages in the Jungfrau Region have people who come back every year, and secure their place before leaving the previous year. Also, some hotels are relatively small.
Having found your preferred accommodation, if online booking is not yet available, I would send an email to the hotel enquiring about how early they will accept reservations, and they might tell you they will accept them now.
That worked well for me in Wengen, where I stayed for a week at Christmas 2016. I wanted a room with a view in a particular small hotel, and they accepted an email booking about 15 months out.
Before booking, make sure you understand the cancellation provisions.
