But the question is "Do I have the proper gear?".
Since we seldom have dumps of snow back home I havn't tried my latest setup in deep snow.

My weight is 140 lbs and I am 5'7" tall.
- Nitro Team Gullwing, 157 with Burton Cartel bindings. My all mountain setup. Purchased last year.
- Salomon Drift Rocker, 148 with Salomon Rhythm. My park setup. Purchased this year.
My guess is I have to set my stance back one step or two, and perhaps lean back a bit.

What do you think: Will I float?
Yeah, like most have already said, your so small that your 157 gullwing should work fine. Set it all the way back for the deep pow and ride smart. You shouldnt waste money and buy a deep powder board for a few days, unless your super rich, your gullwing will kick ass.
