Standing on flat ground, push your weight onto your front foot -- not hugely, just the amount you'd do for normal riding. Concentrate on the feeling. Memorize it. Feel where your knee is, etc.

Then when you ride, for the first little while consciously try to get that stance and that feeling. Then keep correcting yourself when you find yourself out of proper stance.

I know this sounds like 'just do it' advice, but if the stance doesn't come naturally then you have to consciously practice it to internalize it. It eventually becomes automatic.

Yep, this works. You know you've got it down when you find yourself riding like a flailing gaper on the first deep pow day after you've got it worked out.

shift your hips sideways toward the nose...just an inch or two.

I was tipped to tap the tail of the board before turning (during practice runs), just to remind the body how it feels to have the weight shifted to the front foot and off the back foot. Works for me =)
