Sorry. When I said back country I didn't know what the term implied to everyone, just what myself and my friends used it to describe.
I called a shop and talked to some people that board alot more then me. They recommended the Rome Solution or Rome Anthem in a 161-163 range.
The boots & bindings I'll pick up in a shop tommorow, same as a helmet.
Thanks for the help folks

|kcordloh||Thanks. I like in Missouri way out in the country, but I'll make a specific trip to the city, it's a 4hr trip so gotta get everything researched first, to get boots. I was thinking, based off what I've read, so correct me if I'm on the wrong line of thinking, of a directional board. I'll end up trying stuff, but mainly I'll just be in the back country and ignoring park.|

|Ride_Capita||there are plenty of all mountain boards out there that could work for you. You want a stiffer board and bindings if your not going to be jibbing or being park oriented as much. The boots, all i can say is thats a personal preference on based how it feels for your foot. A boot that could be great for me could be awful for you and vice versa so go to your local shop and try them all on. As for boards I could recommend you the k2 podium, possibly burton custom wide. Bindings maybe the k2 formulas. Just spitballing though.|

First time buyer for boots and bindings and board. need help..
Okay. I'm 6'0, 180-200lbs (it varies, never tops 200, never dips below 180), boot size is 12.
I don't really hit up park much, I might this winter a little but my main bread and butter will be Big Sky MT runs. I pretty much just carve and have fun. Do some drops off steep cliffs and jumps, but nothing more then 6-15ft, so nothing major.
Always ridden rentals or used boards I picked up at pawn shops for $45-50.
Anyone got good suggestions for boots/bindings/ and/or a board?
I was thinking $850 total for the three, less if I could get away with it. But I will be hitting the mountain almost every day, so quality is definately more important then skating by cheap.
