Need advice on a race board

Hi, I'm new to the forum, I have a couple questions on getting a board better suited to my persona. I have been boarding for about 15 years and would consider myself an advanced rider. I have no desire for tricks, parks, half-pipes, etc. I have always enjoyed getting down the hill as fast as humanly possible. I think I need a new board. It's nearly impossible to carve on a free ride board at the speeds I enjoy. All of my riding is done in Vermont, where it can be pretty icey.

Can someone recommend a board for me? I have never even attempted using an alpine board, but after some research it seems like it might be the style of board for me. I've seen people use them and they look very different.

To the people who have used them, what are your experiences? What can I expect?
