Set back is when the inserts are set back from center of the board. The nose will always be longer the the tail. These boards are called directional. Less than an inch is not that noticable and won't effect switch riding, more than an inch is ideal on powder boards.
Slachcountry is backcountry terrain that is accessed after riding a lift up. This type of terrain has all the dangers of backcountry and must be treated with just as much respect. Six avalanche deaths in slackcountry area in the last two weeks. If you don't know don't go!. Backcountry terrain requires a lot of knowledge to enjoy safely, along with the appropriate safety gear, beacon probe, shovel, partner.
