If I were you I would get a Rossignol Experience. Other choices would be the jones flagship or hovercraft, or the ride berzerker. Stiff boards with nose rocker to help with pow. Riding above the tree line won't be all wide open bowls where a long swallowtail would rule. You're going to find boilerplate icy wind scoured ridges where edgehold could be the difference between life and death.
Yep I have the airbag with necessary gear and I will be doing the avalanche course.

boilerplate icy wind scoured ridges, Like sastrugi? Any pics?

u mean a swallow tail will make it hard to hold an edge, or hard to make subtle turns?
I thoguht of getting the swallow tail one coz it gives more stability during high speeds
