Default Suggestions for a Second Board

This is my second full season of riding and with all the deals going on and getting the tax return, it got me thinking about a possibly getting a second board. Here are my stats:
  • Height: 5'7''
  • Weight: 160
  • Boot: 8
  • Current Setup: 149 K2 Darkstar with K2 Formula bindings

I'd consider myself an intermediate as I have only been able to go down the hills that Minnesota has to offer. Mostly, I enjoy carving and playing around on my way down although I do enjoy picking up some speed. I don't really get into the park minus a few jumps here and there and don't foresee myself really getting into it. Also, I plan on going out west at least once a year starting next season if that makes a difference. Boards I've been looking at so far are Rossignol Onemagtek, NS SL and K2 Slayblade.

Anyone have any recommendations?

I kinda think those might be more board than you need for your small hills.

Try something like a Flow Drifter or K2 Raygun. Both will be very capable on you once a year trip, but much more fun on a smaller hill.

Thanks for the input. Looking at the Raygun, it seems to have great reviews everywhere I've looked. Not sure I'm a fan of the graphics on the Drifter though. (although it's not like I have to look at that while I'm riding)

Any other board suggestions for midwest riding?
