Unhappy Travis Rice Lib Tech 153 board in Jackson Hole backcountry?

I was thinking about getting the T Rice lib tech 153 board because I only weigh 150 and I mostly ride park. My only problem is I'll be in Jackson Hole for a month and the Grand Tetons are notorious for deep pouder and backcountry. Does anyone with magne traction experience know if this is a bad idea? For all other scenarios I'd get this board, but Jackson Hole has me scared.

I just worry I won't have enough lift in deep powder with such a short board. I really can't afford two boards or I'd buy one for park and one for pow. Plus it has a blunt tip, as opposed to the longer boards with a pointy tip.

Just realized your post said Back country what do you view backcountry as? Are you going out the gates and shit? Just set the stance back so you have wicked amounts of nose if its a pow day.

Well Jackson Hole recieves 484 inches a year and most of their terrain is ungroomed. It's where Travis Rice is from. They have a pretty substantial amount of pow so I was just worried even setting my stance back a lot wouldn't be enough.
