Do your core, legs and lots of stretching. I like to work the shit out of my core (stomache and back muscles). Hammstrings are also really important as skiing will over develop your quads and if your hammies are weak there can be a shearing motion between the two on a heavy impact thus tearing your ACL. I do legs presses to, so I can get my legs ready for the heavy impact of decking or shooting a landing. Stretches are also key, last year I dropped 10 pounds for the ski season and stretched lots I could take monster impacts!
Hope that helps, if it doesn't make alot of sense im tired
I opt to neglect cardio like that as I would rather have my legs have lots of fast twitch explosive muscles to deal with the big jumps and big tricks
streching everyday is whats gonna make the difference. you dont want to take a big crash and contort your body in ways that its not used to yet.
