i would check with the owners manual to see if it shows an adjustment for the belt drive. most mowers today are equipped with a self adjusting arm witha pulley tensioner with a spring attatched to it. as the belt stretches the tensioner spring pulls against the arm causing it to apply tension to the belt thus tightening it. it sounds as if your belt is stretched beyond the limits of the tensioner. at least every new season it would be a good idea to inspect the belt tensioner for room or space of free play. that is to check to see if it will move opposite the pulley allowing the belt to tighten. if there is not enough sufficient room then i suggest replacement of the drive belt.

SOURCE: BELT ADJUSTMENT
There is an idler pulley near the drive pulley under the engine. It is made of plastic and is a common failure. It freezes up and doesn't want to let the belt move. Have you noticed the smell of hot/burning plastic? You can replace it with an original, but it is still plastic. Metal replacements can be had. I think I got some from mcmaster.com so try there. They are a great resource. Shipping is fast and inexpensive and they have everything a guy could want.

The belt is probably slipping because it is not tight enough. look by the belt, inside there is a little spring, you may half to tighten it.
