What will help when you’re trying to move off on snow?

Use the car's lowest gear

Use a higher gear than normal
Use a high engine speed

Use the handbrake and footbrake together

If you attempt to move off in a low gear, there will be more torque (turning force) at the driven wheels than if you use a higher gear. More torque makes it easier for the tyres to lose grip and so spin the wheels.
