Apline racers turn and their going 70+mph and they get seriously injured and/or killed.
If you're turning down a slope without constantly hitting the brakes/leafing and the slope is steep you're going to be flying down the mountain. You will catch an edge eventually and get seriously injured. You're in denial if you don't believe that's true.
