Red face A little help... Please

Hi. I need help in purchasing a new board. I am 5'3 and 120lbs. I just started snowboarding this season, but I can now link turns, carve, and have been exploring blue runs. I don't know if I'm considered a beginner still or an intermediate rider. I currently have a 2010 Burton Lux. I'm thinking about getting a Never Summer Infinity, but don't know what size to get or if I should get a different board.
For added info, I am interested in riding the park, but want a board that rides well on the mountain as well. Any suggestions?
A little help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

Many people really like the Infinity but I think the Pandora might be a better fit for what you want to do.

If you are still are exploring blue runs then yes you're still a beginner. Size wise I would recommend 140 - 148cm I honestly think you should just stick with your current board. You probably won't even be able to tell the difference.

How many times have you ridden the Lux? Why do you want to switch to another board? I would stick with the same stick for the rest of the season. If you really want a new board, pick out a few and wait for a month or two - you should be able to find some great decks on sale (but maybe not the Infinity).

And yeah, the Infinity is good on jumps, but not so great on rails, etc.

I've had the Lux since December. I rode it almost everyday since then. I'm getting really hooked on snowboarding. I thought of getting a new board that I can maybe grow into and has a good hold on icy conditions . Ski resorts are not as good where I live (it's better than nothing), but the parks are okay. I'm thinking of getting a new board that I can use for awhile that will be good out here and when I visit out west.
Thanks for the responses! I appreciate it!
