I've always been interested in getting into boardercross as well. My old snowboard coach told me that the best way to practice during the summer is to get in as good shape as you possibly can. Do lots of squats, leg presses etc. and build your endurance by running and hiking.
I'm going to try out boardercross next season, I've been putting it off for too long.

i rode a melting boarder cross course at whiteface this past sunday

the small 'pump-jumps' as ill call them were close together with a kicker at the end, then some banked slopes, then some more bumps and features

the banks are fun as hell, they should do a small run of them, its kinda like our version of moguls

Just ride it oooooout, sounds good! lol

At my home hill they have a couple mountain bike trails that get packed down, and thats all that they are; pretty wide burm/bank turns n straight chutes twisting through the trees

Now its a little different because you have to surf it out and really kick out ur back foot and keep it there sometimes (so f*ckin fun/cool looking) so its a little bit irrelevant to boarder X but i thought id share lol.

That's exactly my plan, I want to get a personal trainer to kick the piss out of me this off season so i can just make love to boarder x course next year.

Other than that I'd say get into really good shape if you aren't, look up snowboarding-specific workouts, a big part of it is endurance.
HAHAHAHA the ski out at Sunshine... Ah yes... Great Boarder-X training, especially around 4pm... Maybe we shall pass each other there one day... If you see a black blur that's me!
