Congrats on the breakthrough! Sounds a lot like what I recommended to you in that other thread. As you learn to just be more dynamic in your riding, these turns can be opened up a bit more to be these shallower open ended S turns. In avalanche terrain, the full C turn can get you killed.
It pretty much is. But as you say, there's a difference between talking about it and seeing it. Or having someone watch you and comment.
Also, and I think this is an underappreciated aspect of lessons, just following the instructor and learning the best path for handling the terrain is a huge win.
Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
