What size snowboard boot?
I wear a 13 shoe, but size 12 boot, so I stick to mid-wide boards.

Given that you are not going to go in the park and are ridding in places that get big amounts of snow i would say go with something with some rocker and a little set back. Flow Drifter, k2 turbo dream, or NS legacy (wide SL) would all be good for what you want.

Get a mid-wide or wide and look for something in the 157 to 160 range.

I agree with the NS SL or Cobra, I don't like Flow, to weird feeling but that's my opinion, or Ride Wildlife. And Rome Targas, or Ride Capo's. Burton Cartel's are also pretty good, but only those bindings from them. As a rule I stay away from Burton because of their poor quality track record.

i like flow side cuts but to each his own.

I have never heard anything bad about burton bindings quality.

I have targas and they would work well for what you are doing but will be on the stiffer side.

Either one should be fine at a size 12. If you are nervous just get the wide it will be fine.
