I think he just means that it's quite difficult to steer, if the weight is back.

Anyway, if you are panicking, you likely instinctively put your weight back. That will make turning very difficult and slow. If you put your weight forward, you can turn much faster and tighter.

If your turns are tight, there is much less need for speed control and you don't need to complete your turns. On steeper stuff, you need dynamic turns to do that (snowprof has videos for that, I think).
