You might feel foolish getting up this way, but I guarantee that you can get up. You need to try to roll onto your belly and do a face down spread eagle in the snow. Your ski tips should be facing up the hill on each side of your body. Then you take your hands and do a walking push up. Walk your hands toward your feet as your lifting your torso off of the snow. Eventually you will be standing up. Then you just have to slowly step around until you're facing downhill again. Try practicing this a few times on dry land without skis to make it easier!
Hope this helps!
