Do you have a budget?
Do you prefer a fully or a hardtail?

With the riding you prefer and your size, I would recommend something beefy that can do everything. This is just a quick list in no particular order of importance. The Hardtails are cheaper to build/buy and maintain.

Full suspension is usually more money and I put dollar signs to represent the relative cost with $$$ being big bucks, $$ being fairly pricey, and $ being not too overly expensive in mountainbiking dollars for the fullies and hardtails.

This is relative because I based the dollar rating on frame cost, with some brands having more than one model ie. Giant, Specialized, and Cannondale. It also depends what parts you put on a frame.

Planet X Armadillo$$
Banshee Scirocco$$
