If you can brush the snow off with a broom, the plants should begin to bounce back. It's the weight of the wet snow that's making them lay flat. There's not much you can do to make them stand up straight again. They'll do that on their own once the weight is removed. Most evergreens are quite resilient and should bounce back. Best wishes with your plants.
