Question Evo or SL?

I'm looking into getting a new stick this year and I'm having trouble deciding what would be better for me. I've been riding a 151 '07 Evo and think it's about time I upgraded. My home hill is Mount Washington on the west coast and I always take advantage of backcountry booters on powder days, which we get alot of seeing as we had the deepest snowbase in North America last year. On regular days though, i spend a majority of the time in the park hitting the jumps (rails aren't a stong point for me). I'm 5'11, 175 pounds now, where as before I normally weighed about 155 - 160. I found that even my 151 evo was fairly stiff and was not very butter friendly. On jumps it was great but in powder it was a bitch and that was obviously due to it being so short.

I'm a huge fan of Never Summer, but I was looking into a GNU park pickle after seeing it received a good wood award and all the hype surrounding it, but then I found out NS boards weren't even tested and am starting to think good wood is more or less a marketing scheme run by transworld. Reguardless, I dont think the pickle would be very powder friendly. So my question is: Which board would be better suited to handle backcountry booters AS WELL as exccel on park kickers? Evo or SL?

As much as I Love my Heritage if one board is what you are getting got he SL as it more versatile on the freestyle front and covers most of the Evo's territory not so much on jibbing.
