Fitness really affects how well I ski. Running is good so you can stay on the hill longer and builds up muscles around your knees and hips and is free. Sit-ups and back-ups for core strength.
I find the leg press at the gym the best skiing weight training it strengthens your thigh, ass and lower back which is perfect for absorbing landings.
