Default Help with board selection - yep, another one!

Guys, I'm just looking for some feedback here.

5'-9", 200 lbs., size 10 stompers

Total newbie....never stepped on a board.

All mountain, powder over parks, and speed but always stay within my limits.

I'm looking at an intermediate to advanced board that I can learn on and grow into......stability with little to now chatter, etc.

I am going to take lessons and will definitely try on and fit boots before buying.

No brand preference....reasonable budget for quality gear....etc.

Final thoughts....I've heard the first few days are rough but once things click progression comes fairly quickly. Camber, Hybrid, Rocker....thinking Camber for sharper turns and stability....I really don't want something thats real loose....

Could use some feedback on my board thoughts, particularly regarding camber vs. some of the hybrid decks....heck who am I kidding, I'm really wanting you guys to tell me what how you'd approach starting if you had it to do over and what equipment you'd get today.

Thanks for any advice....yeah, Crash will be wearing a crash bucket!
