Midwesterner here! Will my board be alright at Copper, CO?

This is my second year snowboarding (only went a few times last year) and I am planning a trip to Copper Mountain in Colorado. I obviously know that the snow conditions and mountain conditions are going to be way different than the landfills here in Illinois/Wisconsin. What I wanted to know was if my board will be alright with the deeper powder that may or may not be on the mountain. I'm not sure how much snow that area actually gets (I'm going the first week of March) but I've heard stories where people get stuck in snow cause their boards are too small. Mine is a girl's 148 Rossignol all mountain with a medium flex. I think the width is like 23.5 cm or something. I am a 5'6'' 145 female. Should I get another board or will do this fine in more powdery conditions?

Unless you're planning on buying a new board just for one trip, you'll be fine.

If you're worried, set your bindings back a notch.

Well I would keep this board and maybe get a larger board for bigger mountains if I had to.

What do you mean by setting my bindings back? Changing the angle?

:::: ::::

this is what a standard mounting pattern looks like

the 4 holes in the middle of each mounting area are the default holes

you mount your bindings a hole back to help with powder float

Ah, make my stance wider. Maybe I'll try that at a hill around here to see what it feels like.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. I ride my little twin tip 155 out there everytime i got. I'm sure it isn't the best but who cares, it never gave me any trouble.

I'm confused. If I moved them outward then that would make my stance wider?

lol ok standard patteren :::: ::::

say you have you bindings :;;: :;;: (;= where bindings are)

hes saying move them to ::;; ::;;

Either way you will be fine. More powder you will just have to work harded. Pluse chances of powder are not good enough to get a new board.

Gotcha! So you would want to move them towards the tail a bit. Thanks for clarifying that.
