Default Speed Control

Hi everybody,
So I'm faced with the problem riding moderately steep hills and hope I can get some advice. I starred snowboarding this season and with help from YouTube I taught myself everything from proper stance to linking turns and now I'm riding greens with certain amount of confidence. But I'm having hard time controlling my speed on less steeper parts of the run especially when I find myself on a crowded run where I can't do wider S turns to slow down. I saw more advanced snowboarders passing by with much higher speed and making very short sweeps with their back foot and front foot still pointing down the hill and it seems like this kind of moves allow them to control speed much better.
I hope I described it properly and maybe somebody can tell me how to do this
