...So, in the end, I can't seem to carve AND my steering is also not precise enough. I can negotiate people but I can't negotiate trees or moguls and I have a hard time on the narrow cat trails that traverse between two lifts.

That being said... I went on the bunny hill with my friend (who is on day 4) and I found that I was suddenly using my rear leg as sort of a rudder and just going straight switching from edge to edge...

Is there more than one way to turn?

I can sympathise, I know what you are talking about but i'm a lot less help than the link I posted. Sometimes going back to fundamentals can help. Highlighted a couple things above, you seem like you are contradicting yourself
