Lookin for an all mountain board

I'm an intermediate female rider looking for an all mountain board. I've been riding a roxy classic 2006 board for 3 years now, and I'm ready for something new. I mainly just stay on the mountain and out of the park, but every once in a while I'll do some boxes or go off the smaller jumps. The two boards that have caught my eye are the Burton Feelgood and the Gnu B-nice. However, I'm not sure if a reverse camber board is a good choice for me since I'm not in the park much. Any suggestions?

I would actually say the Never Summer Lotus would be a better match to what the OP is looking for. It's a womens Premier F1-R. It would rock the mountain and be fine for boxes/jumps. If you want a more flexy less damp then the Infinity would be sweet!

My GF has a cambered GNU B-Nice MTX and she loves it. The B-nice now being BTX would be fine but you would probably like the feel of the Never Summer R/C beter. Especially if you do want an all mountain board. GNU's B-Pro has C2 BTX and is similar to the Never Summer R/C but just get the NS!!!

Thanks for all your help! Both the infinity and the lotus look like great options. I love the graphic on the infinity. I actually had not thought about buying a Never Summer (just didn't know anything about them), so the input definitely helps! I'm going to a board shop next week when I'm home from college, so I'll check out both options. Also, does anyone know anything about the Gnu B-Real 2009 board?

Never Summer has the longest warranty in the business, and the best customer service. The boards look great, feel solid, and I have yet to talk to someone who hasn't been thrilled with the ride. I can't wait to get mine out this year.

Both are great options - Burton for standard camber, B-Nice for reverse. I'm an all-mountain rider who rarely sees park time, tried a ton of reverse boards last year, and won't go back. B-Pro is also great for the reverse-camber-reverse tech, if you have the cash. Our lady shreds didn't feel the difference in ride versus added cost was enough to reason carrying it.

Also, K2's Ecopop was one of our lady's favorite boards, ever. "Rides like a Cadillac". It's Flatline, so completely flat, has Harshmellow and all the other K2 goodies.
