Default Need Help Picking New Board for the Wife

Everyone here was so great in helping me pick my first board last year ( BIG Thanks to Snowolf), that I thought you could do the same for my wife. She rented & borrowed a friends board last season and is hooked and wants her own set up for 08/09. She is 5'3 130 lbs, wears womens size 6 K2 boots, regular stance and is strictly into cruising down groomed resort runs in Vermont & New Hampshire. I really think she needs a beginner / slight intermediate board since she just started linking turns at the end of the season (pretty sure the board she borrowed was way to stiff for her and she had a hard time initiating turns). I'm a big fan of my Rome Solution 158 and arsenal bindings, but don't know much about their female boards and bindings, so if anybody has any opinions of a good set up for a 40 y.o. new female rider, please let me know. Thanks

Kev.
