It's very important that you practice riding on your toe edge. Even at the bunny hill in Cypress, force yourself to ride down the whole run on your toes. You have to be comfortable on your toes before you start making turns.. Just do it, go up on a weekday and spend an hour lapping the bunny hill on your toe edge. Turns will become a lot easier!
When you're starting out (like I am, really..) it's tempting to get stuck doing something you're comfortable with rather than frustrating yourself learning things you don't particularly like. But you really have to put in the effort to learn the basics and it'll reward you in the end
