What helped me most was consciously thinking about my body as I make my turns and carves riding "regular" and mimicking that when I ride switch. I, like most people, find myself putting most of my weight on my front foot when I ride switch, which completely changes how the board cuts on the snow. Consciously put more weight onto your back foot. Ride down half of the hill regular and truly think about what your body is doing when you turn and carve. Then start riding switch and do the same thing. Your body should be doing the exact same motions but with opposite feet. Hope that helps!
