What is a good drill to help with agility in snow skiing?

To perform the speed ladder jumping jacks, start by jumping inside the speed ladder, then outside and forward, and back inside again similar to jumping jacks. To perform the out-out-in-in, start with both feet in the first box of the ladder and step out first with the left, then the right foot.
