female women's board help? Pandora vs. B-Nice vs. Ollie Pop vs. Gypsy?

Hi everyone, wondering if you could help me choose a new women's board?
I am 5'5", and 115 lbs.
I am *I think* and intermediate snowboarder. Very comfortable with turns and BLUE runs, testing out a Black Diamond once in awhile. Working on carving etc.
I think I need an all mountain board... need something to progress on...
I will probably never ride parks, no rails, no crazy jumps - but I also don't like to go super fast... no bombing!
I live on the east coast but also snowboard in the west... so both groomed trails, and deep powder. Once in awhile there's some ice out east.

Have been riding an 8 year old Salomon Ivy 148... and am looking to upgrade.
Just bought Thirty Two Lashed FT boots and Union Trilogy bindings (so BURTON boards with the channel are out)

Boards I'm considering are:

Never Summer Pandora
Salomon Gypsy
Roxy Ollie Pop
Gnu B-Nice

Thoughts on these boards? Any other rec's?

When I read about these boards on the company website, they are often described as 'park' boards... though I also hear from some shops that most people are riding both softer and shorter boards than what used to be recommended. Is that true?

WHAT SIZE board should I be riding?

Ok thanks so much in advance for your help!
