Default Board and Binding Suggestions for trip outwest

Thank you for taking the time to help me out. I have been riding for about 11 years, and can pretty much get down anything. I have always been a freerider, but I have begun to dabble in the park a bit more. Its been years since I have bought any new equipment, and so now I am in the dark about what is out there.
I mostly ride in Vermont, but currently am planning a trip outwest (colorado, montana, utah, cali, washington, b.c.) I want to get a board, bindings, and boots that are great in powder, but could also suit me well back in the north east. I have been leaning toward the burton custom 162, with flow five bindings, and boots I am at a total loss (had a pair of solomon with the wire lacing, which really killed my shins).
I am leaning toward to custom because it seems versitile (set stance back for powder, bring it back up for park etc...) and I honestly have yet to meet someone who hasnt liked one. The flows just cuz they seem quick and easy, althought there seems to be a love hate with these.
while I would like the equipment to be nasty in powder, I have to accept the fact that I wont see much in my future. :-( Any advice you could give me would be great, thanks again!

My specs:
Height: 5'11"
Weight: 175
Foot: 11

yeah def ditch the fives. Flow seems to be one of those snowboard companies that you have to go all out and spend big money for thier quality product. pick up a set of burton missions or ride exs those are about in that price range and much better IMO
