Thanks everyone for your input on this so far! Over the past 2 weeks, I've learned how to carve and the green run gets easier every time. I am able to ride switch but still not that good at carving yet. I'm almost there though..just need a few more practice runs on the bunny hill. I still have 3 more lessons left..the 3rd lesson is carving so I guess I'm doing the homework ahead of time. As for my stance, I've decided -15/+15 is most comfortable especially when I ride switch. For those that are trying to learn switch, I found practicing switch riding diagonally downhill on my toeside (facing uphill) repeatedly helps with eliminating the "feel" for your preferred side. This exercise will really burn your calfs though.....
