Do i need another board for Japan/Switzerland?

Hi guys

Some may remember me from 2-3 months ago at the beginning of our Australian winter i was on a hunt for my first board and settled with a Rome agent. Since our winter season is over i am currently experiencing post-winter depression and have decided to go to Japan and Switzerland for more snowboarding in Jan/Feb.

Do i need another snowboard for Japan something like a powder board or free ride board? If so anyone got any recommendations for a certain type of board? I have no experience in powder and would love to learn how to ride deep powder so i can avoid spending 5-20 minutes climbing out of deep snow. Are these types of boards generally stiffer compared to the free style boards?

Some examples:

Custom X?
Neversummer SL?
Nitro Pantera?
Rome Anthem/notch?
