I keep saying to myself to bend my knees and raise the toes to dig in the edge but i don't know if I am bending them enough.

Please let me know your thoughts on what my next steps to improve my riding should be

Thanks in advance for your help
How tall are you?

IMO you need to bend your knees more you look to rigid or upright. With proper knee bend you will get more on edge and your turns will be more fluid. Also with proper knee bend you will lean more on your turns getting on edge and really powering thru it.

What mtn is this? I fucking hate T-Bars!! I never knew T-Bars existed until I moved to Europe. They are the bane of my existence!!
