Default Turns on Narrow runs/slipways/run off slopes.

I'm not sure how it is elsewhere but the alpes have endless narrow runs down to the resorts, usually packed with skiers
I'm talking about the ones that are 5metres wide tops and usually only green or blue runs but with big-ass drops over the edge.

Now I'm probably an intermediate rider, can go anywhere on piste (greens-blacks) without much of a problem. However when I get onto these narrow runs I'm pretty sure I resort to 'back-leg' ruddering, sometimes I even just slide on one edge the whole way.
I wanna practice sorting this out in the off-season (in snowdomes) so next year I won't have this problem.

Can someone tell me what the aim/technique should be on runs like this? There's always a couple of boarders who manage to just bomb it down doing real dynamic turns.

I've tried searching the forum for similar threads but could so with it clarifying with some solid advice that I can practice.
Thanks in advance! I hate going from cruising down the open piste to crawling down to the resort.
