Yeah, I guess I was only considering it skating if I was pushing with my back foot.

Anyway, thanks for the advice. I had noticed that hanging my back foot a little did help me turn on my heelside when I was first learning. Now, I don't really have an issue with sharp turns on that side, but perhaps it would help me toeside. I mean, I'm not completely useless in that direction, but significantly worse than turning heelside. I may just have to play around with it on the beginner hill next time and try out some of the suggested techniques. It will give me something to do when I ride by the park (which is on the way to the beginner area) only to realize there are more people in there than I want to deal with.
