2011 K2 Zero or 2011 Salomon Answer

Hey all,
getting a new board for the upcoming season where I will be mostly skiing in Vt. This board will make it's way back west (Colorado/Utah or California) in a 1-2 seasons after I finish grad school.

So anyways, I'm an advanced rider who's looking to get more into tree skiing but still wants a board that can handle well on groomers. Ideally, I'd like this board to be able to handle powder too. I don't spend time in the park except to hit a jump or two. I'm not into rails or anything like that. I do like to take jumps on the side of the trail and random ones I find. That being said, I know I can't have everything. These two choices seem like great all mountain selections.

One is the 159 Salomon and the other is a 162 k2 zero. Both have a waist width of 250 mm. The major difference aside from the length appears that the K2 board is quicker and more light weight but the salomon has more flex. Which one would you go with? Will the waist width hurt me if I have size 10 boots?

thanks
