Ill go ahead and say you are probably doing skidded turns not carves, the feeling you may be getting just before hitting the snow is probably your edge really engaging and hooking you into your toeside turn.
Ive done this plenty when i was (and still am) learning to carve properly. I still cant do it very well at all and ive had much more than 5 days on snow. To be doing real carves after 5 days would be very very unusual, so dont take that as a swipe, just facts.
Also from my own experience speed actually helps carving, so by going slow you may be off balance or something like that. The other thing to make sure of is that you are not getting any toe drag, that can cause similar problems.
Ohh and BTW i dont think you asked a question, so im not sure why i answered.....
