You will love it, guaranteed. If you are an intermediate-advanced rider (would classify myself that way as well) you will pick it up in no time flat. The place I went cat riding was at castle mountain, fairly powder beginner friendly. My girlfriend was like you and had never ridden pow like that before, but she had a blast and was keeping up as well as she does on the rest of the mountain. Also of note she was riding her gnu b-pro (i guess you could say a very similar women's deck to the t.rice), and had no issues. I rode my 157 turbo dream (more pow specific but not by much) and I am the same weight at 6'1 so I don't foresee any issues with riding the t. rice (travis sends it all over the world on that deck).
Long story short, GO FOR IT! don't worry about the board, set the bindings back a little for better float and commence shredding.
