In the load selection panel of the channel field, select Alpha 1. Then fill in the selection with white. Now you can press CTRL+D to deselect. Add some shade to the snow. Now, you can just use your own creativity to add layer styles or background color to your image. Create a new layer in between your text layer and snow layer.
