Default Getting back up


Any comments on how to get back up once stacking it onto your butt in knee-thigh deep powder.

This is my first season doing BC so it's still a big learning curve. If I stack it and wind up face down, no problems, just pack down some powder into something resembling solid snow then do a pushup. The issue is when I stack it onto my posterior, it's really hard to pack down snow that's behind, while pushing up from behind, while having an extra few KG in my pack (shovel, probe, water, headlamp, spare gloves, candy bar).

Is there any techniques for getting up off your back, or is it always a hassle?
