No matter how steep, same principle applies.. weight on the front foot to initiate turns and just make harder turns and control your speed, literally all it comes down to is... not getting on your back foot and that's like someone above me posted... you gotta cough out those cajones.

but if you get worried remember that doing a full stop and catching your breath is an option most of the time.... but when you are on the blacks the point is speed with expert edge control, so if you aren't comfortable on the black maybe you should go to more beginner friendly ones, it may not be the run for you, yet.
