Default Help on choosing first snowboard

hey guys, im in the market to buy my first snowboard as i am attending college in the mountains this fall. Was hoping this forum could steer me in the right direction; any help is appreciated thanks!

Rider: 18 years old 5'10" 160 lbs. low-intermediate ability. I've snowboarded a grand total of about 50 hrs in my life so im not terrible; i can carve pretty well and have all the basics down but looking to progress more on carving at higher speeds and learning to butter, dont care much for parks and ramps but will occasionally take a ride thru the park. Only ridden regular cambered twins so far.

Terrain: Appalachian mountains, often hardpack and a few icy spots, but definitely gets it's share of powder. The blacks are not extremely steep by most standards, but not just a hill either. hardly any rocks and backcountry is virtually nonexistent.

I wanna get the most durable board for the money but unfortunately $350 is my limit... So if you guys could point me in the right direction for a nice allmountain shredstick that would be greatly appreciated thanks!
