If you have used unleaded fuel with ethanol in your snow blower at anytime there is a great chance that your fuel lines will melt and fall apart. Todays fuels are designed for todays autos and there is no allowances for older equipment.
So you may get lucky, but I recommend you be prepared to replace the fuel lines, primer bulb and even clean the carb eventually.
