Same board for 6 years -- what might be a good upgrade?

I've had the same snowboard for 6 years -- I snowboarded much more when I first got it, but now only get at most maybe 10 days a year (I *might* even rent for the foreseeable future). I think it's time to try some new technology and I'd like to demo some new boards and bindings on my next trip in the next week.

I currently have a 2005 K2 Recon Riser S-Class 161cm (a narrow board with built-in risers and not a lot of camber) with same year Burton P1 Carbon bindings.

Some about me:
Height: 5'8"
Weight: 160 lbs
Foot size: About 11

My riding style is almost all free ride. I'm reasonably experienced and good at free riding and will spend time on the groomers, hiking the bowls, powder if I'm lucky, and some smaller natural jumps. I was pretty happy with my existing board, although I feel like it wasn't great in powder

I would love to hear suggestions for boards (and/or bindings too) I should consider trying on my trip!

Here is a good starting point. Put in your specs to narrow your board focus. I imagine you will get some more reply's once you provide some boards your are interested in...
