Default Would a beginners board work for deep powder?

I have been riding a 162cm Burton Canyon. I just saw a used 160 cm K2 Illusion
for $25. I really have to work to keep the Burton on top of the powder on the
steeps. Would the K2, with its softer flex, be an easier (better?) ride in the
deep soft stuff?

You don't say how big you are, but if you're struggling to get your
board to float, I'd suggest:
- move the bindings back, if you can
- get a bigger board.

Then again, for $25, why not get the K2 anyway?
