One big problem you will run into with deeper powder (especially at stevens) is that you kind of need a steeper run in order to make use of it. Stevens has quite a few flat areas that you really need to carry speed through. This is where black, and double black runs are handy.

I would worry about getting stuck and hiking out. Especially when we are getting into miracle March. Heavy wet snow requires even more speed.
