Besides for continuing on with plenty of warnings, sometimes that just happens...

The batteries were weak? They turned on their beacons after they reached the end of the ski track? Talk about bad mistakes. Your beacon should be "on at the car, off at the bar", end of story. Included in that should be a beacon check to make sure you have enough battery power. Talk about setting yourself up for failure. Batteries are not expensive people, keep them fresh in your beacon, and turn the damn thing on as soon as you step out of the car...
