you can go with expedition style gear that is not snowboard specific, and it will have everything you want and then some, including $$$ brands like patagonia, mountain hardware, etc.
careful there are like 6 brands out there that are all burton, i would stay away from all of them (craftsmanship). (not 100% sure but i think some of them are like 686 and special blend for example)
i got a new volcom setup this year, its pretty sick. i got a good buddy who works for them so of course i'm biased. they have a ton of options, but one of the best things they got is 95% of their pants and jackets come with ziptech, which in weather and pow is pretty sick, keeps wind and snow from going up your back.
