Can you do toeside stops proficiently? If not, maybe you should spend some time practicing those until you get comfortable with them. Toeside stop is essentially an aggressive toeside turn. Find a gentle slope then progress to something a little steeper. From there you should be able to get more comfortable with toeside turns and you can start linking toe and heelside turns and you'll be on your way to shredding Valahalla.
