Linking Turns on Steeper Terrain

I can link decently on the blue runs at my local hill. However on the blacks I cannot link at all. I end up doing skided turns and coming almost to a stop before I can turn back the other way. I think part of it is the speed factor but there might be something else to it, too.

I have seen on different clips that some people lift the nose of the board a bit when turning. I thought I had seen that this is supposed to help on steeper runs.

Anyone have any suggestions on how to link better or the name of the technique?

Thanks in advance!

personally i tend to un-weight the rear foot and pivot it around the front

almost like a nollie

it is kinda like a hop turn one way then the other... repeat....

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
