First you have to realize that I actually have a dedicated powder board... so in my mind every "normal twinish" board is only so-so in +4ft of fresh powder.
Taking that into account, I would say the Proto was ok in powder... I never felt like I was going to submarine super hard into deep snow and get really stuck. I was able to turn and float so long as I leaned back on tail heavily. If you are riding less than 2 feet of powder with a decent steepness, it should be fine.
Where in Canada do you live? (You said "cheque is in the post", so you are from a British Commonwealth country such as Canada, Britain, or Australia)
