the best way to keep that weight in the front is being comfortable, its natural to want to lean back but I find that my keeping both knees bent helps, for stubborn students I have them touch their shin with their front hand in order to get in doing heelside and toeside turns on the bunny hill, then when they start to get it a little better and their confidence is up Ill take them up to the halfway on the green

a little speed does help progression but I wouldnt advise zooming, get comfortable with turning and stopping, then linking turns, it helps to balance weight by practicing leafing, then gradually work your edge faster and faster, your weight will be centered and youll be working on turn transition and stopping at least on the heel

Yeah the steeper the slope, the less chance you'll catch an edge because its up at such a high angle, so in reality flat beginner hills are slightly harder.
