Ur doing nice skidded turn. Just like all people who didnt take lesson ur doing few mistakes. Dont even think about carving , its another level of riding for now just stick with nice skidded turns like u did in video. Just few tips..your shoulders when ur doing toeside must be pointing to place, where u wanna go. Its common mistake that people wanna see where they are going and open up whole body. It happen few times in your vid. When u wanted to go toeside , your shoulders was still pointing down the hill and not to direction where u want travel( u completed turn with counter rotation which is very bad , common mistake for people who learning withtou lessons).So look over your shoulder when ur doing toeside. Your heelside turns was better because your shoulders was already in posisition for heelside turn. Remember to keep low , flexed ankles , knees and hips but back straight..especially in those heelside turns. Very important is weight on the front foot when ur initiating turn, without this U'll catch edge or complete turn with counter-rotation, which is very bad habit.

Its hard to give tips via forum , but I tried:P And most important tip..have fun , keep it up!

About carving...I see many people call carving something that isnt. When ur traversing hill just on your edge , then doing skidded turn , then again traversing on the edge...thats not carving.
