No... all-mountain stands for "all-mountain freestyle" (unfortunate that it is so ambiguous)... what you are describe is freeriding (groomers and pow). I have owned the Evo, the SL and now the Proto.

I'm one of those people who do "belly dragging carves on an SL" that BigmountainVMD is referring to... but I ride the SL 155 in the park as well.

If you are going to keep your Evo, I would go for the Heritage over the SL... I haven't ridden the Premier, but at your ability level I worry it might be too much board for you (too stiff for you).
