Good setup for groomers, powder and jumps.
 
I currently use pretty much the lowest-end Burton setup. Invader boots, White Collection standard board and freestyle bindings. As I learned more and more, I became apparent that my setup is pretty much the exact opposite of what I would want as a person that only rides groomers, and powder when there is very heavy snowfall during the day as well as the occasional jump. I've never been to a park and I have no interest in going to one. From my understanding I would want a stiff setup. What are some good recommendations. I'm going to be buying gear soon and I will be trying everything on but I would just like a few tips and recommendations from people that are more experienced than I am. I consider myself a pretty good rider. I ride black diamond trails at Mont St. Anne and Le Massif no problem.

Ugh, I forgot the question mark in the title :/

Here are my suggestions :)
board: Burton Custom X
bindings: Burton Malavita EST
boots: i can't suggest anything because it all depends on what fit you like the best

You don't think the Malavita is to soft?
I'm seriously considering the Burton Ion Boot.

I ride 2012 Malavitas all over the mountain (except the park) and I have never had a problem or thought they were to soft for any type of terrai I have ridden. Someone else will probably chime in and give you a better answer but I ride them all mountain.

That's pretty much my riding style. I just got a t. rice pro hp. Alil pricey but I got good money for my 4 yr old custom. Im going to ride it with my super stiff Burton c60s , best freeride bindings I have ever owned. U can find them all over eBay. And my boots are a stiff dc judge t. Rice pro model. All around stiff settup

I have the ion boot, it would be good match for custom X, and my riding preferences are very similar to yours.

My bindings are C60's, I was going to switch to diodes but am not sure. Suggest custom x plus ions plus used c60's would be very stiff, responsive combo.

Or perhaps this one, Rossi Jibsaw.

I got to demo this board & it was awesome, this will handle anything & everything you can possibly throw @ it. Guaranteed.

I had a 2011 Burton Hero, that I thought was really good. It's a high end board.
After demo-ing the Rossi Jibsaw, the Burton sucked.
It was almost brand new, so I sold it as fast as I could before I could wreck it.

This is my 25th season snowboarding, I've owned more than 100 boards, this board is a good one.
I have yet to see one on Craigslist ever, the people who have bought them aren't sellin' em.
