Default trouble shifting after donuts?

i pull into a parking lot full of a ton of slush and snow to do donuts today. That lasted about a minute so i went to park, i get into a parking space and try to shift into park, and the car willnot shift out of N, into R, to get to P. It was stuck in Neutral and wouldnt budge into R, or P. But i could go back down to D, 3, 2, or 1st gear. but not into R or P. I try it again pushing the shifter harder into R, (using more force than i should need to to shift) and then it shifts into R and then P. I try to shift again and drive around another minute just to be sure nothing is wrong. What would cause trouble shifting from D->N->R after doing donuts??? (2007 impreza, auto) any thoughts?

You've got snow and ice packed into the 'linkage'. Keep wiggling it around or just park it in N until it thaws.
