Default Advice on 2nd board, used or less expensive possibly.

I will be looking for a second board for next season.

Some background on me:
60 years old. 165 pounds. Size 8.5 to 9 boot.
First year snowboarding, been out 6 times this season so far.
Will shoot for 12 sessions next year.
Local hill is Monarch Mountain in south Colorado.
My first board is a K2 HC161 I bought used.
I've mounted Flow NX2AT bindings on them and like them.

Style is freeride. I'm looking for a board that will support
advancing in powder, steeps, bumps and trees.
I favor versatility at lower speeds over higher speed capability.

Gnu Billy Goat 156 is at the top of my list.
This makes me think a gullwing profile,
Camber/Rocker/Camber is what I should look for.

Topics for discussion:
* Wisdom of used versus new.
* Boards to consider.
