The only way is to try and try.
But before that make sure you are absolutely dialed in on edge control. The last thing you want is a nasty edge catch at high speed.
So far I have done 60mph and it's pretty gnarly.

As you mentionned looking far away is the #1 thing that will help you go faster confidently. Try to be in a state of mind where you "anticipate" things engouh. You really want your legs to actively absorb terrain, not just be subjected to it. And then get low and stable… and learn to honestly say to yourself if you were going to fast for your skills or if that was all in your head.

One thing that helped me more than anything was following faster people than me. One guide was doing like 5 turns on a face where I would do 15… then I started following his tracks and whole new way of riding powder opened to me :)
