How do I weigh snow across a circle?

I want to figure out how much a bunch of snow weighs. If I have a relatively even distribution of snow two-feet high and spread evenly across a twenty-four foot circle, where do I start?

This is hypothetical so I imagine I would need to assume the snow, per metric, weights more or less X pounds per unit at all times and without any constant melting and refreezing. Then I suppose I would seek the volume.
How much does a unit of snow weigh, assuming some regular density? What math should follow?
