Default Heelside Carves

First of all, I did use the search function, and I couldn't find anything related to this topic, so either I'm really bad at using it or the topic titles are really mis-guiding.

I'm having some trouble with heelside carves. I can do toeside just fine, but whenever I go heelside I find the snow keeps falling away from under my edge and I have to re catch it (if you know what I mean), which just ruins everything. It's as if my heelside edge won't dig in as efficiently as my toeside edge.
It's frustrating because I really enjoy carving and its a shame going from a powerful toeside carve into a shaky heelside.
Any thoughts?
