definitely take both. two boards should fit in one board bag, and it would be nice to have options when you get there.

If you can only bring one then I would bring the K2.

That'd probably change what I think...

Why don't you just take both? An extra board is no more than 10 pounds.

Assuming you're heading to qtown/wanaka, the snow is not bad. But we suffer from inconsistent conditions unlike the northern hemisphere.

The k2 fastplant will do you well in both Park and free ride. But you should have no problem bringing both, it's nice to have the options, especially if you suffer board damage and need a back up.
