On carpet and in the snow are two completely different things. First off you'll have to get used to your board, since from my understanding you are just starting. Once you got more balance and control you will also get more pop, takes a couple sessions.
And second, if you don't have x-treme grip, you'll have to wear some kind of boots that provide good grip or else it'll be very very hard to do tricks. What shoes are you wearing?
Ultimately x-treme grip makes the experience way better, much worth investing in.
