Default First time snowcat trip?

So I'm thinking about a trip next year to introduce myself to powder via snowcat. Some concerns that I have:

1- I'm from the midwest so outside of a day at Breck where it snowed about 4" overnight I don't have much pow riding experience. I consider myself an advanced intermediate rider but since I don't really have any pow riding experience would a snowcat excursion make sense? Is anyone aware of a snowcat operation that caters to someone new to pow riding?

2- Will my LibTech TRice work well enough on one of these excursions or would I be better off getting a pow specific board? I'm 5-8" 180lbs and have a 157 - is it too short for pow riding?
