Getting your butt low during toeside turn?

Hey. I'm a beginner. When I toeside turn, I sometimes worry that my legs are almost straight. Especially my back leg. How do you get your weight (butt) low while still keeping a toe-side edge?

Knees bent(not squating) lead with your front shoulder(lean your front shoulder over your front foot)slightly.And lean into the mountain(if steep)but not to much where you'll loose your balance.Hope that helps.

A tip that my friend gave me when we were setting up my stance/width for the bindings, is you want to be able to squat down without your butt extending back too much. I.E. a wide enough stance so that when you squat down, you're not moving your center of gravity OUT, but rather just lower it on the same axis....roughly. (he didn't explain it in those words)

ok I'm sorry. i no this isn't the "right" forum for this

he's right, when adjusting your bindings you should put the toe edge up against a wall, then stand on board where your bindings might be, then with your feet not moving bend our kneed till they touch the wall(isn't far is it) and when your going down o hill your knees should never bend farther than they are now, so adjust you bindings so you can easily do this(Also very important to lkeep you back parallel with wall or perpendicular to ground, all your doing is lowering your body using you quads and all your weight is put on them, not your knees)
