Default New board, for all mountain AND park?

Hey all,
So I've been riding park boards the past 4 years (Evo, Youngblood DD), and this year I wanna do more All Mountain/pow runs/tree runs, but also Park. I've found some great All Mountain boards, and also some Park boards, but are there some that are great for All Mountain and also great for Park riding?
I don't know much about the technology of boards so I'm not sure on what to look for. Basically a good board that will be great for the whole mountain and spending the day in the park. About 50%/50%.
I live in MN but will be going out to Utah a lot, and don't feel like bringing my Forum Youngblood Park board out there, (shitty for all mountain).

I've read that the NS Proto is good, maybe the Revolver? I will need a wide board, size 13 boot.

Any information is greatly appreciated!!
Thanks,
Jordan

The Revolver IS the Evo. Proto is still pretty soft, all mountain freestyle.
The Heritage is more AM, Salamon Assassin. ext

not sure how the DOA and Happy Hour will hold up with size 13 hooves. try the ride machete or buck up as they come in wide sizes.

throw the blacklist/westmark wide on your... list too. Machete isn't a bad choice either.

you already said it, but a wide proto would not go amiss.

I'll chime in with my 2 cents:

K2 Happy Hour / Slash ATV / Rossignol Jibsaw
