Heel side turn completion

Hey everyone, just want to get some feedback on something I've been experiencing lately.

This is my second year snowboarding. I've been up over a dozen times last year and already a dozen times this year. I can do linked skidded turns with confidence at 25 mph sustained speed (according to alpine relay). Thanks to this forum and private lessons, I'm following he principles of front foot steering, keeping my weight centered, leaning forward for turn initiation, etc.

However, what I've noticed though is that when I'm coming into a Heel side turn, I feel more pressure on the my rear leg High Back causing me to slightly oversteer.

In order to correct this, I brought down the forward lean on my front foot binding down two clicks and it seemed to remedy the issue.

I'm just wondering if this is indicative of a technique issue?
