Default Need help, Never Summer SL or Bataleon Goliath

I need some help deciding my new board.

I like to ride all over the mountain, but my friends with who I ride have sort of split up in two different riding styles. The first group loves to just cruise and goof around, doing tricks, jumps, etc. no big park, park just very occasionally. But the other group just loves to bomb down the groomers and go as fast as they can!
I would love my board to have the best of both worlds, because I enjoy both styles and am sort of in between...
I want to keep improving my switch (not the greatest priority), and be able to cruise through the powder occasionally.

So I need a very all round board stable at high speeds in all conditions, even on hard packed groomers and ice, but playful enough to do tricks, jumps and some buttering.

Stats: ~170lbs, 6í, size 10 boots.

Iíve narrowed my choice down to these two boards, but other recommendations are appreciated:

Never Summer SL 155/158?
Bataleon Goliath 157 (Depending on if I like the TBT after testing it)

Tnx for your help!
