The biking (LOTS of it) and backpacking in the Grand Canyon, along with some simple maintenance got me through my first two full days without ANY residual soreness (to my surprise). I skied pretty hard both days too. I hope y'all faired as well.

Squats and lunges works for me! Stability balls and balance discs while doing squats w/ dumbells oh ya, feelin' the muscles workin'.

Hiking/backpacking. I reckon that's included in your 'etc', eh? I'm just starting to do a generic leg strength routine - squats, leg curls, straight leg extensions, but don't know how this will transfer to the skiing yet.

Powder days work best for me. :-D One or two powder days where I can't resist skiing from lift opening to closing usually lights my legs on fire for hours, but tunes my legs up for the rest of the year. :-)

aside from the normal running biking ect anyone have anything that has worked well for them in the past.

I have found doing 3 sets of squats a night with the ball works
