Is my board too big

Hey All,

I just started riding and I was able to trade a guy a basically unused Burton Canyon with Mission Bindings for an old pair of skis I had. Seeing as I knew nothing about the sport, I figured a 167 would be an okay size for me (I did some research on the Burton website and it looked like someone 6ft and 240 could ride a 167)... however, after a few days on the board, it feels really hard to turn from the toe-side to heel-side. Of course more practice would probably cure this, but I'm wondering if I'm on a board that might be making an already steap learning curve, even steeper.

Any thoughts?
