cant beat squats for explosive leg strength. weighted front and back if youre strong enough. there are videos on youtube of olympic powerlifters performing unbelievable vertical jumps, big large guys that you expect to fail immediately. check it:

that's all squat right there. i suppose for skating you'd want to do your squats with your legs further apart than usual. you could also just practice jumping holding weights.

the foot snap at the end of the stride that has already been mentioned is all calves. weighted calf raises and lots of skipping would be my plan for that.
