I rode the same board in the backcountry at whistler.

You have essentially described 2 different boards. An all mountain deck for western resort riding and a deck for backcountry powder. If you are looking for a backcountry board why aren't you looking for a splitboard?

Didn't think it came across as that. I am looking for an all mountain board like the title says. Yes I will take this board into powder at time.

But I want something big and charging so if I hit the steeps and taking big lines let it be on the west coast and some groomers on the east.
