while powder is soft to fall in, it is annoying/sometimes difficult to get out of if you fall, depending on how deep the pow is. therefore for a beginner, it may frustrate her if shes spending the day digging out of deep snow. she's most likely going to be falling a lot if it's her first day, so getting the repetitions for the feel of being on a board and beginning to turn is more beneficial i think than a soft cushion. everyone gets bruised up when they start. all the more satisfying when you get it. good luck.
