I have a season pass for my local slope, and do a little bit of work that gets me staff privileges, and here in Norway that means you don't pay for other resort passes...

So the real cost is equipment and fuel... I spend about 1500-1800 a season, total...

But then i am one of the lucky ones... Haha

You are a lucky fella! I would consider myself lucky if I lived near a great resort but them maybe I am lucky that I live close to an indoor slope and can go 24-7-364.... Closed for New Year....

Actually, it's more like 12-7-364 but you get the idea!

All of the tried and true leg excercises/lifts should be sufficient enough. What's most important is utilizing FULL range of motion, and not cheating on the lifts. Of all the leg exercises, squats are king when it comes to leg strenth, and endurance. Nothing else compares. What's important to know is that squats aren't all that beneficial of a lift, unless one takes 'em low---to parallel, or lower. Wrap the knees, when going heavy, and ALWAYS cycle weights/reps ((doing box squats is a great way to learn proper technique)). I credit my love for squats as the sole reason that I've never experienced muscle soreness from snowboarding ((not even on my very first outing!!!)).

I lift for strength. I always train with 3 weeks light weight; 20-30 reps. per set, which is known as deloading ((great for recovery, and reset)). In the next 3 weeks, I switch to using a moderate amount of weight; 8-12 reps. per set ((for general endurance and skeletal muscle hypertrophy)). Finally, I finish up with my favorite!! 3 weeks of heavy weight; 3-5 reps. per set ((strengthening the tendons, and ligaments, which is where the bulk of actual strength comes from)). Cycling weights and repetitions is commonly overlooked, but it's usually the reason that people plateau with regard to muscular, and strength development.

I weigh in at 210 Lbs, at about 8% or lower bodyfat. And, even though I'm in phenomenal shape, I'm pretty heavy for snowboarding. But, thanks to my love of powerlifting, and squats, I can literally go the entire distance of a run considerably crouched, when I want to ((which I tend to do, as I ride aggressively)).

Thanks for the advice Ollie78!
I'm doing squats and lunges at home both with and without weights and I do think things are improving so you are onto something there...
I too tend to ride on the aggressive side and I guess that's why I'm finding it physically hard work???

Hi!

I've personally become a fan of some of the p90x workouts. If you want to remain powerful in your turns and jumps all day long, I highly recommend doing the p90x plyometrics 2-3 times a week for your leg workouts. And if you're already content with your current exercises, just try it out once a week and I guarantee you will notice a difference in your explosiveness.

Happy training

That's usually from pushing yourself up from a sitting position frequently. Either do some bench dips regularly to strengthen your triceps, get up from a kneeling position instead of your ass, or just never sit down.

Lol, thanks Irahi! Lol....
You're probably right....
Although, my arms have stopped aching so I guess what I'm doing is helping???
Not falling is an option.... I guess???
