Well I am a Burton fan and they make a lot of good all mountain boards. The Custom line is incredible, with all kinds of versions. I have a Barracuda now that I think is the perfect all mountain board even though Burton calls it a POW board. I have Cartel Bindings on both a reg Custom and the cuda and buying the same bindings for both my boards should tell you I like them. If you are looking at other companies I would look at Ride, Arbor and maybe GNU. My son rides a GNU Park Pickle and loves it! Good news is its hard to find a bad board these days if money is not an issue. If you want to drop some big money check out Burton Mystery.
