Question Heli boarding with my K2 Parkstar

Yeah, i know, it's less than ideal.

Got the opportunity to do some heli skiing this weekend; from one of the resorts up near Niigata. Its not full on Jeremy Jones back country; in fact its really just to get to another peak next to the main resort mountain (about 2000m/6500ft at the top). Got some warm weather lined up this week so i am guessing it wont be powder by any means, but at least it will be deepish/soft and should have nice views

Problem i have is that my main board (2012 K2 Parkstar) is not really the most ideal board for this adventure. Its shortish (152cm, i am 155lb), true twin, flat rocker, currently set up with a centred, duck stance.

Is it worth shifting the stance back as far as it can go, and switching to forward facing angles on the bindings for the trip back? Would that make a difference on an obviously park oriented board?
