Default Steep chutes, blacks, double blacks. Question regarding technique.

Browsing YouTube and stumbled upon this video, and just wondering if this would be considered good technique going down steep stuff.

I am asking because my confidence has grown, and I find myself attacking the steep stuff more and more. My technique is not 100% perfected, but correct me if I'm wrong, but it's almost impossible to initiate turns with the traditional "gas pedal" method on very steep stuff. It seems you have to jump in from heel to toe and vice versa.

How do you guys ride the steeps?
