I couldn't agree more with RJean. Luzern is a wonderful city. You could do it on a day trip, but I'd recommend staying there. It is situated on a river with beautiful and famous bridges, and its on a large, pretty lake. And its surrounded by mountains. What's not to like? ;) You can take an excursion on the lake to a cog railroad up to the top of the mountain. Luzern isn't a cheap city, but likely more cost effective than Zurich if that might be a deciding factor. Other options might be day trips to Bern and Basel, but as nice as those cities are, I feel Luzern has them beat by far.

Yes, don't stay in Zürich, stay in Luzern.
That gives you a nice town to explore, boat trips on the lake and local mountains to go up (Rigi, Pilatus and Titlis).
See this panorama of Luzern to tempt you:

I would also recommend Lucerne. We were there last March. I would recommend getting the Lucerne pass. I think they have a winter rate and is good for nearly everything in Lucerne. We went to Titlis, Rigi, Interlaken and a few boat rides all for free with the pass.
