You don't need a "significant amount" of weight transfer.

Your shock set up and limiter straps can be adjusted for ideal amount of transfer.

Ideal amount is to just have the skis skegs hovering above the snow on a climb...NOT wheelieing up the mtn. You are losing traction if you are doing that.

SLP does make a bolt on part to remount the top mount of your front rail shock for powder performance. I'd advise getting that.
