    Please please please can you give some examples of specific exercises that are useful for either snowboarding or ski touring. Or point to some research or someone to ask?

    I splitboard where I ski-tour up the hill (skinning) and then snowboard down. I have worked out a reasonable program for general strength and conditioning – but am struggling to work on designing exercises that mimic the sport/s movements (other than squats in the snowboarding stance – I was thinking more on exercises that mimic the initiation of turns etc.).
