suggestions for a 2nd 'all mountain' board

Hey guys I'm looking to buy a second board for this upcoming season as my old board is a bit of a noodle.
I have the nitro sub zero 2012 model but I find it washes out trying carves and on icy patches, and starts to chatter at higher speeds. Its definitely a park board sold to me as 'all mountain' when I had no idea the difference.
Anyone have any good recommendations on a board that will carve nicely, handle tree lines and powder, and bombing it down groomers. I need something a bit forgiving though for those crappy days we get here at local resort in Ontario.

So I'm an intermediate rider looking to take it to the next level.
Looking for a medium flex with a solid edge hold without being to catchy. I want a combination of camber as I feel rocker would be to loose at higher speeds. Don't wanna jib or butter and not looking for rail board, just something nice for kickers. Would the never summer cobra, or jones mountain twin be something I'd be looking for? Any suggestions would be great

how 'bout some flat cambers? nitro has a whole bunch, with different flex ratings.

Yeah I was considering the nitro rook, seems to be a good board all round. Anyone know how a Rome agent rocker would compare? A few people have been saying it's got great edge hold for a rocker and good speed too.

I've narrowed it down to a few that seem like what I want. Any suggestions of which one to go for would be great.
Jones all mountain twin
NS cobra
Nitro rook
Rome agent rocker
Any others worth looking at?
