Default Please help in picking my board!!!

Whats up guys, new to the forum but hoping to find a little help....

My brother just moved to Aspen and I have 2 trips already planned before march to visit him. I have been snowboarding for probably 1-2 weeks every year for the last 5 years so I am pretty comfortable but excited to have the opportunity to go more now to visit my brother and I decided its time to invest in my own board!

My budget is right at about $350 and have found some decent options I believe in the right size. Being in the south they are all virtually unused and have narrowed it down to 3 and want some help deciding from you guys who have more experience with this...

1. 2011 burton TWC standard. The Shaun white board with Burton freestyle bindings and motto boots

2. 2008 Burton blunt board also with freestyle bindings. No boots

3. My favorite and my pick I think... 2012 gnu Forest bailey pro. Flux bindings and burton ruler boots.

These are all right at 300 and I think I'm getting the best technology for the money with the gnu but my only concern is I don't want to be getting too much board still being a pretty intermediate rider..

My riding style is mainly groomers on and off the trails and just popping off everything I can.. If that's a style? Haha let me know what y'all think! Thanks
