Actually, it is not. Sorry. :'( It needs to be something more forcing than that.

Can you do this simpler puzzle. also White to play and win?

the black king is too close after 1.b5 cxb5!! 2.a5 bxa5! 3.c5 a4 4.c6 Ke7 and black wins. Any other bright ideas?

How about first forcing a breakthrough on the kingside to keep black's king tied there and then break on the queenside?
Would that work?Can't really figure it out on my own and fritz is occupied with analysing Spielmann games so I can't try it out against my silicon enemy atm.

i didn't work for me, white loses a tempo in the breakthrough and black gets a chance to block off the queenside.
