Switch Pow, Should I bother?

I'm gonna be riding baker for the next 2 seasons, and that means I actually have the chance to learn to ride pow!! Would it be worth my efforts to learn to ride pow switch? I plan on building jumps and spinning them of course. and with spinning comes the chance to land switch.

Another note on this... Should I keep my stance centered at 23.5"?

Last time we had a poo day at Seymour (we don't get pow, we get poo), my back leg was so sore by the end of the day that I vowed I would learn to ride switch well enough to be able to alternate stance on every other run.
