Welcome to Epic.  You want one ski that will be good for fast carving and powder?  That will be tough if not downright impossible.  My Nordica Steadfasts carve quite well and are really good off piste but I doubt I could recommend them for "fast carving."  You mention skiing at Whistler, but no mention of where you normally ski.  You are better off to buy a ski that is good for the place and conditions you normally encounter and rent a powder ski at Whistler, unless you plan to ski there the entire month of March.

You might want to consider something like the Blizzard Magnum 7.6 or 8.1.  They carve well but also have some tip rocker so they can handle some powder, maybe up to 10-12 inches.  Do you have the opportunity to demo skis?
