There's definitely going to be a little bit of a trade-off if you're looking for a one board quiver. I'm personally looking at a Ride Society, since really my East Coast exposure to real powder days is pretty minimal (better to get a board for the majority of your days, and just make it work for the rare pow days than spend the money on a pow deck I'll rarely use). The Salomon Official is also a great pipe board.

Other considerations might be something like the Lib Tech TRS (BTX makes it handle pow pretty well, MTX, and directional setup make it solid for the pipe), and Gnu Danny Kass C2 BTX (same reasons, but has a hybrid rocker-camber profile). Both of those would be a tad softer (more like a 6 at 159), but suitable all purpose.
