Once you're strapped in, walk normally across the snow. Your boot will naturally come up from the branch about 30 degrees when you walk, which will keep you from sinking into the snow.

Pine branches can be used to line a snow cave dug into a bank for insulation from the cold, too.
If you find yourself stuck and need to get out of the cold, find a snow bank, dig out a cave and line the bottom with a ton of pine branches. Crawl in and seal it up except for a little hole to the outside. You won't be comfortable, but you will survive the night.
