good all rounder with rocker?

I need some help ya'll. I'm looking to buy a good all round board with rocker (really want to try it out). I'm a cruiser type that likes pow, surfy, street skate style. Need somthing that handles well on icy and packed snow too. Preferably I would like a Ride (open to any company though). I',m 190lbs, 5,9 with size 12shoe. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Has anyone tired out the ride slackcountry, is it too much a back country board??

Thanks!!

why would you expect it to be good at everything? Its going to be mediocre to poor at everything but pow.
