New Board Help
I'm 6'2", 195lbs. Size 13 boot.
Been boarding for about 20 years but not frequently, I typically go is 5-10 times per year. My kids are getting into skiing and boarding so we are starting to go more. Had an older Burton Bullet I gave away so I had a good reason to buy something new this year.

I live in Utah, usually hit Solitude or Brighton with the fam, Snowbird with friends. I don't typically spend time in the park, looking for a good board to hit the rest of the mountain. All conditions.

Need a wide board, been using a 161W but open to other size suggestions. Boards I've been looking at are the Raygun, Slayblade, and Machete GT but also open to others.

Also looking for new bindings if you have any recommendations for those.

probably wouldn't recommend the slayblade for you if you don't go that frequently and are a more intermediate level rider. Raygun will be a nice inexpensive option, or you could look at its big brother the turbo dream.
There are a lot of boards that fit the bill, if I were you I'd see what I could find on sale in a 159 - 163 W that has a mid-stiff flex and give er a go.
As for bindings same deal, i've rocked k2 formulas for the last 5 years and they've been a dream.
