Last winter when on an annual ski trip there was a young guy in our group who brought along a thing called "the stick". http://www.thestick.net/
It is basically a muscle massager. I used it on the trip - every morning and evening, I was able to ski the bumps all day and go at it again the next day where as years past my muscles were shot after two days. I have been using it before and after rides this spring and it is working well for me. I don't have nearly the stiffness and I warm up faster. Again - I am using it in the morning before I go out and at night before bed. Not very expensive (I got it through amazon.com) and seems to help roll out those muscles.
