Training for Snowboarding
When you are not actually on the slopes, or it is one of the other 51 weeks a year that the normal person is not on holiday, training for your sport will always make it easier.
Snowboarding takes advantage of the legs and abdominals. It almost takes the piss out of your abdominals. Out of season, prepare these things for the shock to come. Running, to improve muscles in your legs, and boost your cardiovascular fitness is a good start.
Crunchies, or any other of the plethora of abdominal exercises will get these going, but remember to work the back muscles also. General flexibility will reduce the chance of sprains and make everything slightly less painful.
