suspension question

I have a 2012 Polaris Assault 800/155 with Walker Evans shocks (fully ajustable). I understand that suspension is bason on preferance but I am looking for some common ground? I am 5'10", 175#, and ride the mountains as well as the deep powder. I have heard stories about backing the shocks all the way out and setting them to the middle and then ride and check the feel? Not sure if I agree with that approach. I would rather have the suspension tighter (at least I think) so I can carv with the front end in the deep powder. My belief is that if the sled is set for a softer ride, it may be harder to carv and more lifting, leaning and weight transfer is needed to get the sled to respond (not saying this is true, but kind of what I think?). Any advise would be appreciated.

Stock from the factory, that sled was already set up for You! It was set for 5'10" and 180# rider!

But you could try just turning the preload up a turn or two!
