Tips to turn in a tight space?

So I am doing footpaths, there are tall snowbanks on either side. At some point I'll need to come back, and I'd prefer to do so forward so I can widen the cleared path (24" snowblower, the path is like 28" ish).

Aside from just stepping in a snowbank, is there tips or tricks for turning the blower on a dime? Anyone have this issue and figure out a technique that works for them?

I'd say the biggest problem is actually the handle length. I can turn the snowblower but I'll be on the auger end of it.

What I do when clearing the side walk I just do a slight turn to clear a little to the side, pull it back a little then turn the other direction to clear enough space to turn around in, although at the moment I have been using a smaller blower, When I get the big one finished I may have to see how it works out.
