Hello Rahul! All places you mention are great in winter. Zermatt and Gstaad are quite expensive and touristy, but beautiful of course. Actually the same goes for Mürren and Grindelwald (Gimmelwald is very small). If you're looking for a quiet town, you may like car free towns (Zermatt, Mürren, Gimmelwald, Wengen). If you want to be sure of snow in the town or valley too, you should pick a town that's high up in the mountains. Gstaad and Grindelwald are situated lower than the other resorts (at about 1050 m).
The Engadine may appeal to you too. This valley in the south-east is very high and thus offers great chances of snow. St. Moritz and nearby resorts are rather touristy, but west from Bever/Madulain/La Punt you'll find smaller and quieter towns.
