It helped that I had 10 years of intermediate level skiing. A proper toe-side skidded turn was a challenge though. My mind kept going, "Wait, my shoulders aren't turned where I want to go? My back is to the fall line? This isn't right."
ya, most people think that these skills are mastered in a couple trips to the mountain, and they aren't. Then the more difficult the terrain is the longer it's going to take to learn to apply those skills to all levels of increasingly difficult terrain.
