Thank's for the help Snowolf. I think I was trying to press down on my heels. Now with knowing I have to lift my toes to put pressure, and with getting my legs stronger, I think I'll have better luck. I appreciate the help.

So I went back to Killington yesterday. While I did much better, it seems when I turn, I seem to wait too long before I switch to a new edge, and end up turning into a slide slip and stopping. Killington's bunny hill is pretty steep, so I'm not sure if it is that I panic about picking up to much speed. For ex. I start a traverse on my heelside, I put pressure on my front toe, followed by my back toe. Before I switch to my heelside, I am traversing on my toeside to a stop. I saw in some of the Snowolf videos, you mentioned to be dynamic by bending up and down. I wasn't sure when to bend more during turns.
My question is when pressuring the toes for a toe turn, and the heels for a heel turn, do you also have to tilt and pivot the board, or is just the pressure enough to turn the board. Also, when is the right time in the turn to start the edge change and go from a toe turn to a heel turn. It's just hard when making a change on a steep when changing to a downhill edge.
By the way, I widened my stance to 22", and changed it to a +18 and -6. That seemed to help.
I appreciate any advice.
