Question First board help (BURTON)

Hi, so this year I am going to buy a board for the first time. I normally just rent for a week or two every year and this year I got a job as a snowboard instructor in Colorado. I like Burton boards and I do so much stuff on the mountain I want a board that can do what I want it to do. I rode a wammy bar last year and really liked it, but i wast able to go to the back bowl cause of the lack of snow when I went up so other than in the trees i didnt get much pow. I spend aprox. 30% of my time in trees 20% in the back bowls if I can and then 20% on jumps and 15% on rails and the rest just messing around free styling down the mountain.

I am 6foot 2 and some change and weight around 160 pounds and rode a 155 wammy bar last year

I read the process might also be a good board as well as the shaun white pro board.

Would it almost be better to look into getting two boards since i do so much stuff on the mountain?

If i got a wammy bar could i make it more versatile with a stiffer binding/boot. I also really like the graphic ( i know its not important for the ride but i like to look good)

Ive been riding all my life just never had to worry about there details before. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
