Bella a thin wire around your tree will prevent snow damage. You can release in spring.
that pot seems plenty big enough to me......I assume you mean 32.5 " diameter, not circumference.
if you can lift it out of its pot in spring look at the roots. Pot on if it looks rootbound or getting that way. Always a good idea to remove, gently, top half an inch or so of compost to replace with fresh.....dried manure mixed into it will help. Of course keep it well watered.......drying out is something most conifers struggle with and fail to aesthetically recover from
