Good link re: low-speed cornering skills in particular on a bike, with obvious partial skills transference for the winter. I don't know the guy and am not affiliated with the site in any way, shape or form.

Lee McCormack is awsome. Check out the 'pump track' section of his site. Unbelievable cross training for skiing and loads of fun. (The Stowe Pump Track is on there I think...) Great lower body (and upper body) workout that helps develop seperation and coordination between upper and lower body. The 'pump' is like skiing bumps... absorb/extend.

edit: Stowe Pump track is on the second 'pump track' page, featuring local legend Hardy Avery.

I think pump tracks are going to be huge over the next few years. Basically any ski area that allows any mountain biking the summer should definitely have one. Aerobic, low-impact, and definitely just like skiing or riding bumps or pumping rollers.

Edit: looking at Shaun Palmer as one example for both skiing and riding, one reason for his success beyond having a great tech was in fact his great pump.
