Default New Board Advice

Hello all, appreciate this site, its frickin awesome. Has helped me narrow my search considerably, but I need to know what you think in the end ...

I am 5'8
190lbs
I ride mostly groomers and off trail, med sized mountain but live in the snow belt, so I get some really nice Powder days.
I do like to pop lips, and jumps and stuff though. I rarely hit the park but I like a board that isn't just a really fast stick.
I'd like to keep it to $300 or under, I'm not a pro and don't need to spend the money to make me think I am better then I am

So thats about my riding, now what to buy ?

I am stuck between a K2 Raygun and a K2 Brigade ... thoughts ? (or another suggestion)

What about length, this is another real question, I want it to be responsive enough in the air, but also carve nice. I am quite athletic (that weight is muscle, I train 5 days a week) so I don't mind a board I have to work with a little.

Many thanks

J
