That happened to me too learning last year... Most of it is just getting yourself to commit to the turn. It feels like you're going down too fast but once you get used to it it's easy. Practice makes it easier. And I know when I went this season I felt way more comfortable than last year and had no issues skating off the lift and felt in control. And after I felt at home progression went wayyyy faster. I can't believe the stuff I'm riding now. I'm having a blast too, well worth all the hard falls in the beginning.
