Definitely not a powder board. It has decent float but isn't your best option for really deep stuff.
Edit: On topic, I don't ride with different settings on this board than my other boards. Currently using 12 / -6 and 24.5", but I'm 6'5" so that changes up my stance quite a bit.
If you think it would be more comfortable, change your settings around. I used to do it on the mountain to tweak my stance and test what fit me the best. It only takes like 10 minutes to change your settings.
