Default Keeping in shape in between trips to the mountain?

Sup guys, i'm tryin to prepare myself early for my next snowboarding trip. I'm kinda new, actually one trip new lol but hey i went down a black diamond successfully my first time, albeit sliding on my heel edge most of the way lol. definately sticking to greens and blues next time just to get comfortable on the board. I've been reading alot about people having trouble switching edges but for some reason i don't have that problem. my biggest problem is the fear of speed but im sure that will fade with practice. anyways back to the subject at hand, what can i do until my next trip (and in between future trips) to keep myself strong and ready to go?

The only thing I have found that comes close to working your legs like a snowboard is riding a dirtbike around a motocross track.

Barring that, you could try running stadium steps for your thighs, jogging backwards for your calves and doing wind sprints for your lungs.

Haha if only I could go dirtbiking. I was born and raised in socal so I used to do a lot of it. Moved east so now I guess I kinda switched to snowboarding lol. Oh and btw - I smoke too much for wind sprints lol.

I've always referred back to this in the fall as the snow season approaches.
