I ride the tubulars to save my body. A tubular has a lot more compliance and therefore a softer ride on bad road surfaces than do clinchers. As my riding season progresses (usually about 1000 miles) I shift to the? carbon wheels with the tubies. It is about that point that I start doing the longer (60+ mile rides). I am not a racer, therefore my good wheels are my everyday ride. I ride for fun (not withstanding my rant on wind to JB) therefore I use my good wheels once I have my base miles in.

Yes, cycling does help your skiing, unfortunately skiing does not help your cycling.
