Default Buying new board.. Need advice..

I'm new to the forum but not new to snowboarding (not completely.) I still ride my first board. I don't ride but once or twice a year and I just never bought a new one. I have a 96 burton t-deck 153. 12 years on the same board. I think it's time for a new one. This year I'm going to much bigger mountain than I'm used to. I'm going going to Heavenly for the first time next month and I want a new board. I've never been anywhere but Sugar and Snowshoe which is only, at most a 1500 ft drop. I'm 6' 250+lbs, not fat, swole. I wear a size 11-11.5 boot. Not big on the park but enjoy small-medium kickers and I like hauling ass and catching air over rollers. I wanna try and step my game up. I'm looking for a stiff 158, I think. I like the ROME solution, but really don't care. I just want a board I will be comfortable on. Any suggestions would be appreciated (price range $400 or less.)
