I got to think Hockey is probably the best.. Not sure what you mean by "all inclusive" in this context though.

Yeah, especially the checking part to prepare you for the weekend crowds, .

Cross country running, skateboarding, soccer,.  Not a sport, but running stairs makes my legs feel just like they do after a long day of skiing.

mountain biking.  technical descents require the same mental skills as a technical descent on skis.  the uphill climbs are great cardio workouts.  get out your wallet, swallow hard, buy a nice bike, and you'll never look back.  :)

Yeah, I think many of the mountain biking skills can help with skiing and vice versa. Skills such as line choice, balance, and one of the most important-looking ahead! The fitness benefits are a given.

Use inline skates on smooth inclined pavement.  Add poles and you are really skiing, no skidding all carved turns.  Great for technique, plus it really teaches you to stay out of the backseat because there isn't one.  Good exercise as you skate back up the hill for your next run.

 The problem with rugby is that you might be too injured to ski.
