If you are in front, then it is down to whoever is behind to be aware of you, not you being nervous because they are behind... Try to put others out of your thoughts and ride as normal...
True... there is an element of me freaking out when I see the edge. And imagining diving off the side in a dramatic accident, taking several skiers out with me.
OR... maybe it just makes me hyper-aware of my technique, whereas I don't think about it as much on a wide open stretch
