Hi JackDuggan and welcome to MySwissAlps!
Some people return to the same hotel or lodge year after year and book their room for next year at time of check out this year. I would be surprised that any hotel is totally sold out for July already.
Do note, that hotels only release a set number of rooms to each booking aggregator so if booking. com has no rooms, other companies may still have rooms available. Hotelscombined.com for example.
If your flights are booked and your dates are set then I'd go ahead and feel free to book rooms now (especially if you aren't booking non-refundable rooms).
I'm sure you'll find rooms available in January though if you want to wait.
