Maybe less than a foot deep, that might work.
But basically, what you describe, would be like trying to do push-ups in the deep end of the swimming pool.

Maybe Jesus could after his stroll across the top of if, but I'm thinkin' even he, might have difficulties doin' push-ups.

All I could picture after reading that, was this.
The first time I tried to get up off my butt while strapped in , my arms would go right through the snow, couldn't even feel bottom, and it was hard to pack snow behind me to push off of. I found that when i flipped over it was easier to pack snow in front of me to build a solid layer to push off from. If it's flat, unstrapping is the best idea like everyone has said.

Not the most flattering picture of me in deep snow, more than a foot
