Default Shallow slope help

I've been snowboarding enough to learn how to get up, go, stop and maintain good control. the main area I have had an issue with at one of our hills is a link between runs. It has a shallow slope so I can't build up speed, but also it is cambered left to right, right being more downhill. I ride goofy, so I have right foot forward and try riding on my toe edge(the uphill side I suppose), but I seem determined to catch the back edge and throw my tailbone into the jaw-shattering man-made snow.

Any tips on how to ride the shallow slope and not catch the edge, I did try starting on the up-side of the camber to give myself more room to correct, but at some point I inevitable slam into the ground, very ego bruising as it is such a slow part of the hill. the falling generally happens when I try and keep myself going straight to keep out of the trees on the down-side of the camber.

Thanks!
