r: Thanks for replying! You hit the nail on the head - it's the first problem. Actually, I am great with managing my heel edge. It is going from heel-to-toe to begin the process of turning is where I am stuck. I am pretty bad with my toe edge (when I am looking up at the hill while trying to go down backwards with my board horizontal to the direction of the run). With the heel edge, I fall on my bum which isn't so bad and thus I have gotten good at it. With my toe edge though, I tend to fall on my face which isn't fun lol
I think I should maybe get an instructor for an hour or so.
PS - I tried to follow this excellent blog by this couple from Colorado (your hood!) - Free Learn to Snowboard Videos | SnowProfessor
- but everytime I tried to practice things at the bunny hill on Seymour, the run ended before I even did a part of what the video teaches. I'll try SnoWolf's videos as well.

: Thanks for the insight! Both runs seem to offer what I need... during weekdays anyway. I'll hopefully be able to manage school next term to have a day or two off in the middle of the week.
Thanks again everyone! Any suggestions for instructors and location? If you have anything else to add, I'm all ears!
