I had this problem, it turned out that A/C compressor had seized and wouldn't turn, because the compressor was stuck it would rip up the new belt- so you can one of two things;
replace the compressor and belt
get a shorter serpentine belt and bypass the A/C compressor- there are several sites that show you how to route this.- i did this being a college student, not having A/C isn't that bad

SOURCE: I broke a belt on
First, are you sure you broke a belt or did you break the shear pins in the auger?
I am going to assume you have a 2 stage snow blower. Here is a manual for a "typical" two stage blower. http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/12649/CRAFTSMAN-Snowthrower-Gas-L1001285?brand_name_search=craftsman+88957
Your blower may be a different color or make, but changing the belts will be basically the same.
Follow the instructions in the manual.
If you have a single stage send me the make and model number off the nameplate and I'll walk you through the belt change.
I'll be glad to answer any other questions or help you though this repair.

SOURCE: my snowblower belt broke. How
Rotate the snow blower forward so it rests on the front intake with the tiller, there should be 4 or so bolts holing a rear lower plate on the immediate back of the blower. Remove them and you will see the pulley system where the belt goes. depending on the model, you'll see the adjustment wheel that may need to be loosened, most are simply tension. If you have the belt, bring it to a dealer, agway, etc and buy a belt. If no belt, measure with a piece of string. reverse the procedure to install.
