I would say that the only smart thing to do is strengthen your legs as a whole while making small adjustments that further enhance the snowboarding benefits.
For example take a typical leg workout:
But do squats with an extremely slow negative or eccentric phase (Go down very slowly, Explode up)
Same deal with leg press, and leg curl.

I always switch up my routine 2 months prior to boarding season with this.
High Foot Leg Press
Lying/Seated Leg Curl
Seated/Standing Calve raises
I'll do 15-20 reps and minimal rest. I'm always the least sore and have the most endurance. I've noticed having strong legs makes a world of difference on your board.
Imo, isnt this a little too much for quads and not enough for hamstrings.
