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:
Squats
Deadlifts
Leg Press
Leg Curl
Calve Raise

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.


Box Squats
High Foot Leg Press
Hack Squat
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.


cheers
Imo, isnt this a little too much for quads and not enough for hamstrings.
