Bit of a broad question but you could always try LibTech or GNU. Look for magne-traction technology. I'll let someone else recommend a specific women's board in this department - I only know that magne-traction is the bees knees if you're looking for edge hold.
From a more personal standpoint I've always had great success with Rome. I ride the northeast and am accustomed to icy and hard packed crap. Not to mention Rome is based in VT, which makes me think they know how to design boards to handle icy northeast winters.
