I know there's no one answer to this. But just throw out some suggestions would be great.
My Heritage is setback about the same and I've had no problems in knee deep powder. Remember, powder is slow so steeper is better and don't slow down! That board is a little big for you (IMO, I ride a 158W heritage and I'm 200lb naked) you should be fine.
Erm, I believe the default setback on both these boards is about half of what you guys are describing. 1.5" would be pretty much powder board territory.
Also, he cannot go smaller on the Premier F1 - in fact, NS even discontinued the 157 size...
