You sound like someone who comes from a place where there is no snow. I guess you nevertheless know that the substance is like the one collecting in the deep freezer of a fridge.
From now (mid-september) until mid december there may or may not be snow in the Alps anywhere below 2000m elevation. There was some snow, for instance, last week, but it has melted at most places. So if you want to see snow from close (walk on it, touch the stuff), my answer to your questions would be:
1. Jungfraujoch, there is snow up there throughout the year, but I can't remember (from my last visit three years ago) if one can actually go out (except at the observation terrace) and walk on snow. I think yes. But you regard the price as hefty.
2. Many cable cars undergo maintenance in November. Titlis and First are cable cars. You may find out if they operate or not, with the help of Google, or maybe one of the moderators will jump in with the information. Schilthorn, by the way, is also a cable car.
3. Schilthorn is nice. Other suggestion is to go to a place accessed by a train rather than a cable car. Besides Jungfraujoch, there is Gornergrat near Zermatt. Might be costly, too (you can't drive to Zermatt). Or decide at the last minute when you know the snow conditions. Check out this a few days (not more than five days!) before your trip.
