Interesting....when I read this thread I thought: I only have that problem on Bev. Hills.
One way I deal with it by breaking rhythm and really finishing a turn, even squaring up the shoulders over the skis when things get going too fast. That is a bit better than throwing in a big skid, but still not ideal. The inside ski initiation seems to help, and a big side cut (think slalom ski or Metron) seems to help also. (oops just re read some things ...sound like you are already on Metrons)
Another thought...I sometimes end up with a bit of a carved j turn, it's easy to do on new skis and sort of fun, but if you finish with a j, and you let your mass carry on down the hill by a quick edge change (the standard reaction of an ex racer). you won't get much braking. I've been working on getting that energy into a cross-under motion and that seems to make for more even turns, and maybe prevents the mass from hurling down the hill faster and faster.
I'll go up tomorrow to the very slope in question and play with it.
