I did practice one footed riding on last bit of the bunny slope. My first couple seasons riding were very crowded and getting off the lift was usually a crazy experience so just being able to straight glide wasn't cutting it. I'd devote the first 15 minutes a day to it until I could turn both ways and stop on a dime.

My girlfriend is still a little nervous about the lift and I noticed that she cannot turn toeside either. Her problem is that she gets off with her knees locked, stiff legged. So she is trying to turn toeside by either leaning over her board or just flexing her ankles which just doesn't work fast enough
