Yes, if it is wet you want less surface area of the board one the snow. Also look into structuring your base after you wax. This basically creates channels for the water and breaks its surface tension.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't base structuring creating grooves in the ptex?

You can do it that way, but if you only want it for a bit you can do it to the wax.
