Default new all mountain board

Hey so i have a Salomon Sanchez 154 which is great for jibbing around and hitting the park but this season iv been going more and more towards backcountry - powder n cliff drops, and basically my sanchezcant keep up! im 6foot and 180ish pounds

im looking for a reverse camber board, which allows me to stay on top of the powder, can manage big transitions but is also utterly butterly in the park as i love sessioning there.. not too sure if i want to get a board with a set back stance or one that isnt a twin.

I am able to take my pick from Lib tech, Ride, K2 and Gnu boards. iv been looking at the k2s parkstar, turbodream, www rocker, rides dh2 and machete, not too sure if i want/can get the bananna,

any ideas??

I don't think you are going to find a board like that. Why not continue using the sanchez for park, and picking up something for all mountain/freeride/pow. There is a reason many of us have quivers
