Default K2 Slayblade in Powder?

After 12 years of boarding in the NE I am finally taking a trip out west to hit some serious powder. I am going with a group of 5 friends and I'll be the only boarder We are staying in Park City and will definitely hit Canyons and (hopefully) Snowbird or Solitude.

Since I have never ridden in the kind of powder these resorts get, I don't know how my board will handle it. I am 6'1" 200lbs and ride a 161 K2 Slayblade. I thought about picking up a last years model rockered board if the flatline isn't great in the pow but I was hoping to avoid that.

Basically, do I have anything to worry about riding a flat camber board in the heart of Utah pow?

Also, I hear there is a certain technique to riding in deeep powder, anything truth behind this? What is it?
