Default Buying new board.. Need advice..

I'm new to the forum but not new to snowboarding (not completely.) I still ride my first board. I don't ride but once or twice a year and I just never bought a new one. I have a 96 burton t-deck 153. 12 years on the same board. I think it's time for a new one. This year I'm going to much bigger mountain than I'm used to. I'm going going to Heavenly for the first time next month and I want a new board. I've never been anywhere but Sugar and Snowshoe which is only, at most a 1500 ft drop. I'm 6' 250+lbs, not fat, swole. I wear a size 11-11.5 boot. Not big on the park but enjoy small-medium kickers and I like hauling ass and catching air over rollers. I wanna try and step my game up. I'm looking for a stiff 158, I think. I like the ROME solution, but really don't care. I just want a board I will be comfortable on. Any suggestions would be appreciated (price range $400 or less.)

Check out: Snowboard Sizing Guide, Size Calculator

They will also suggest boards for you in your range. Or check out The Snowboard Asylum (TSA) online shop, Burton, Artec, Signal, K2, Ride, Rome, Salomon, Bataleon, Dinosaurs Will Die, Omatic, Endeavor, Stepchild, APO, Forum etc... for some good info and ratings on the boards. You should check out K2's Eldorado series, prolly the 162 for you if you want a shorter board, but with your specs, i'd suggest the 166.
