Just keep at it, need to practice and teach your muscles the feel, they will remember eventually.

Well, I got to hit the mountain today(Gore Mountain, NY) and I gotta say I am psyched about how much I end up liking for being a first timer. I took the lesson as every one suggested and I gotta say it was the best thing I could have done. The instructor was excellent and on point.
after doing toe edge and hill edge I got to link the both of them even before getting of the bunny hill. One thing I gotta say is that I didn't think that getting up on the board initially was going to be so challenging, uufff! got it done though.
Finally, I have to say that I couldn't count with my own fingers how many times I felt(I'm in sooo much pain right now, can't deal with my life). I got to go on one of the green trails and it was good for the most part until I've found out that I couldn't turn or stop on my toe side causing most of the falling and some of them were really bad to the point I've thought I've broke some bones but got up dust the snow off and kept on going lol. I still can't figure out what to do as far as dealing with being on the toe side coming down the hill, any suggestions will be appreciated. Lastly, I want to know how do I know if my board is catching on the edge?

|dirtysven||another question, sorry for so many but mind as well ask than make mistakes later. The Burton board I've recently got its a shawn white edition 158 directional, I was thinking if I should return it for a solomon Ace 158 twin? any thoughts?|

so I bought a Toko file and guide tool to tune the board myself, the thing is that it has a .5-1.0 degree and another 86,87,88 and 88 degree marks on the guide. How do I use these marks and where? I did file the base edge or the "effective edge" of the board to 1 degree but dont know if I did it right? Does anyone knows how to use this file?

|dirtysven||Btw, where can I get tools for tune up? at a reasonable price? I've been looking online but haven't found anything too promising.|
