An important thing to remember is that rep scheme is crucial to sport training. You want to start slow. You are doing the right thing by doing lower weight with higher reps (15-20) for a lower amount of sets. You want to eventually work up to higher weights for lower reps ( 5 sets of 5) over a period of a couple months. This will build strength. Strength always equals endurance and power, but endurance does not always equal power. You should get with a personal trainer to set up a good periodic training routine. Plyometrics are great for skiing. As for cardio you should work on interval training. Hope this helps.
