Default New board.. opinions?

I guess you get a lot of these questions but i'm just looking for a bit of help to put me in the right direction ..Im looking for a new board for next season..
Im 6'3, 190lbs .. size 11.5 boots
I ride on a hill behind my house mostly (usually powdery, we build jumps, rails etc to play around on. ) Maybe 5 times a year i hit my resort on the groomed runs. so i would say 75% i use the board to play around on and 25% on the groomed runs .. that being said I ride a K2 wide select .. looking for something better but have no real idea on the new boards out there.
been looking at the burton custom flying v .. but what other boards are out there suited for me? Im honestly just open to anything , Thanks

Where do you live? Can I come over?

It sounds like you mainly need a jib board to beat up on. For short, hiked runs it is all about jumps, boxes, rails and stunts to keep it fun. I have had some incredible days with friends just hoofing it and building stupid stuff to play on... and then laughing at each other's fails. Sparse snow cover and homemade obstacles can be pretty harsh on gear. You may want a different deck for resort riding and groomers but I would suggest an inxpensive jib board for wat you are mainly doing. I even have one in mind...
