Opinions will vary on this question, but I’d take a whisk broom, clean off the set down to dirt, and blend it all together around the set. The melting snow is gonna crust over and ice over the bedded trap. Even if it warms into the 40s in the day, night temps will still cause a glaze over the trap. Waxed dirt won’t fix this, as the problem is over the trap, not in the ground.
Depending on the size of your trap, and the condition and number of springs, it’s starting to get difficult to get a good hold on a foot with the snow on top of the trap.
