At this stage I would take snowshoes or just ski.
I prefer snowshoes with the heel riser. Skis may be nicer for the flat sections, but as you start to climb up steeper parts, most skiers I know start boot hiking anyway.

you're better off with an airbag backpack and good avy sense than something that could leave you with one foot left in a binding while the other foot releases. i'd way rather have both feet strapped in and anchoring me but still having the chance to ride it out than have one foot strapped in, no ability to ride the slide out aggressively, and my snowboard and my strapped in knee wrapped around the back of my head.
