The snow has already started to fall on our favorite peaks, and some may have already found themselves skinning up mountains in pursuit of early season turns. Opening day at resorts around the west could be just a few short weeks away, but there's still time to give your quads and glutes a tune-up before hitting the slopes and chasing the freshies this season. 

We've put together a simple workout plan that you can pair with 30 minutes of cardio three or four times per week to reduce that quad shake on your maiden alpine voyage. Perform each of the exercises below according to the sets and reps listed for each level. Do your best to bump your effort to the next level within a week or two to keep the progress going. To keep you motivated, just think of the joy in tagging on one more run to your ski day and how much more fun you'll have if your legs aren't cashed after your first lap.

And to keep your stoke levels high until the lifts start spinning, check out the photo gallery for incredible photos from the slopes - and don't forget to THINK SNOW!
