I need a board resolution

I need a board to use out in Tahoe when I move out there. Should I buy used? last seasons? online? craigslist? etc. Help is very much appreciated. I have 32 Lashed boots (size 9) and Burton Cartel bindings.

I have a 151 Burton Blunt I've been riding on it for about 3 seasons now. It is too short for me but I bought it off a friend in credit card debt for a great deal.

I only used to ride east coast slush and learn how to hit boxes and rails so it was no big deal. I took it to snowbird last year(i rented when i went to steamboat) and it was a disaster unless i was on well groomed runs but still fought through and had a great time.

It was my first board and have advanced a lot since I got it.

I am 6ft, 180lbs and looking for something I can ride in deep/moderate powder and learn how to hit big jumps and kickers. I really don't care for park/street riding but hitting boxes are fun sometimes..

THANKS!
What route should I take to get a board/ what board should I get?

I'm willing to spend whatever as long as I get my moneys worth. I'd like to spend less than $100 bucks but realize that is kind of unrealistic if I want a quality board

Never Summer F1? Good freeride board, 3 year warranty. would be awesome for the conditions you describe. Last years would be ok. I wouldnt buy second hand. Its not worth the risk and money saved. IMO

do some research, there have been countless threads like this on the forum, look and try to find a few boards you like. Look for a mid flex board from brands like lib tech, never summer, i'll say burton but a lot of others won't lol, K2, solomon, etc. Then narrow it down to a few and come back if your still having trouble deciding. I would recommend a few but i'm not really up to date on all those brands lines of snowboards so i can't really help you, i'm just giving you some advice to help you get some help from the rest of us, its kind of hard when someone says heres my height and weight, pick my board.
