I find the complete opposite happens to me, my front leg (outside of my calf in particular) gets murderously painful after only a few runs. I was in Japan in January and tha pain got so bad at times it made me feel sick to my stomach, to the extent that even chairlifts were too painfun to catch without unclipping and taking a rest. I've got myself some custom footbeds moulded now but wont be able to check to see if they work until it starts snowing down here in Australia (still likr 4 months away)
My back leg only comes into the equation when riding extremely deep powder, in which i get a bit of burn in my quad muscle.
If you're riding deep powder then expect your back leg to get tired, if you are tiring out your back leg on groomed runs then you're probably having difficulty turning as well, try making a conscious effort to put more weight on your front foot maybe. Back to the basics you learned in the lessons until it becomes second nature.
