Talking Flow Quantum or Drifter?

I'm currently trying to decide between two boards:

2012 Flow Quantum 158 or 2012 Flow Drifter 159

Im 23, riding for about years now, a size 10 boot and I weigh about 170 lbs. Ride about 15% park (Rails, Boxes, Features, kickers, spinning 3s and 5s, etc.), 15% groomers (speed and riding switch), 30% Tree Runs, 40% Backcountry (Powder, Back Bowls, Access Gates, Steep and Deep!). I'm always focused on powder and lines and dropping stuff in and out of bounds and then hitting everything else when conditions aren't great and I like to stay in the trees a lot.

I'm headed to Jackson Hole again in December for 2 weeks need some help deciding which of these boards to take! I really thought the solitude would be a good choice but didn't think it was well rounded enough for me. Thanks for all any help or suggestions. Gonna be getting the nxt-fse bindings too.

Anyone know how the convex base on the drifter is for edge to edge transitions and my bottoms line would prob be having a board thats going to perform well in steep and deep powder run and in the trees.
