From what I've ridden - these boards will tear up the trees, slay it in the pow, and just be super all around fun - Fresh pow runs from 9am-noon after lunch you want to hit a few features in the park? No problem, these boards will kill it and keep you plenty happy.

I would personally hit a local shop, your boot size may be on the verge of a wide - personally with a 10.5 I would NOT get a wide though. Also get the correct size board or it will ruin everything. I think a ~157 @ 190lbs will cater to your freestyle/allmountain/powder/tree riding, all while being a fun board.

edit:

Again - like everyone else said - I would highly advise against the Flagship or the Raptor. These are big mountain, hard charging boards - unless you are putting down first decents in AK then I would not not even consider these.
