Alright guys, so I really need some advice on a new board.
I will be mainly riding this board here in Utah (Brighton/Snowbird Side/Backcountry). I mainly ride powder, like to drop cliffs, hit bowls, chutes, trees. Any natural feature I will go out of my way to hit. I pretty much treat the mountain like a giant skatepark - constantly looking for the next thing to pop off, slash, or drop.
I want something that is stable enough to plow through the mid-day chop and chunder and stable enough to be dropping off any cliffs in sight.
I have it narrowed down to a few or so, and I am totally open to suggestions. I have been editing this list for the past few months.

Now a few of these, such as the powder snake, are too slim at the waist for my boot I believe.
I really fluctuate in weight, and do not know my exact weight right now. But I am anywhere from 150-165 lbs - 6'1" Boot Size - 11-11.5
(depending on brand.)
What do you think? I also am very torn on sizing, and can not decide what size I want for the life of me! Was thinking 161-ish ideally, thoughts?
