Default Confirm K2 Zeppelin choice for me please...

Hello all, new here. I'm in the mood for new equipment and am looking for some input.

Current board: wide 161cm Ride Fleetwood, five years old.
Weight: 180lbs.
Boot size: 10.5
Riding style: 42 year-old dad style (heavy powder, groomers, and trees but no terrain park).
Skill level: Intermediate, can ride blacks but enjoy blues more, 5 years experience, 25-30 days per year riding.
Age: 42, not fat, fit, strong but not too flexible any more
Budget: Under $600
Location: Mt. Bachelor, Central Oregon, Pacific Northwest.

I spotted a K2 Zeppelin 161cm at the great price of $255. My budget is higher but you know how hard it is passing up a good deal.

My questions are:
  1. How will the K2 ride compared to the Fleetwood I currently have?
  2. Will the K2 fit my profile?
  3. The advertisement for the K2 does not specify it as a wide board, so is it wide enough? IIRC, my bindings are set at +15 deg. and 0 deg.
  4. Are there any other boards you think would be a better choice, taking into consideration price?
