Default Picking the right board 6'5 220lb

HI!

Of right now I'm in the process of picking out a board for next year. I lived in Vermont my whole life, and go to college here to (UVM) Growing up as a kid i learned to snowboard and ski. I'm currently 18 and have snowboarded occasional over the last couple years, but did most of my riding as a young kid. I want a board that i can go down the mountain and eventually do terrain parks. I can do some rails now, but certainly I'm a beginner.
\
A friend at a shop said he could get a burton vapor for about 600 with beta bindings or a burton blunt wide for cheap? I don't know if either would be good for me?

Any help would be great

Of right now I'm 6'5 220lb, size 13 shoe, In the middle of spring training so I will be gaining a little bit more weight.

I have the SAME EXACT stats as you, and funny as it is, I ride Okemo as well, lol.

Ive been riding a 168cm Rome Flag since last season and I love it.
