Default Board recommendations...

My girl is coming back to snowboarding after two babies and i would love to get her a new board to get reaquainted with a sport she loves.
She has a lot of experience and would be considered well into the advanced 'level'.
I, however, am not so I ask for any help with a board that would suit her skill level.
She stays away from park stuff. Loves speed and backcountry stuff. We do live in Australia so perhaps that would be taken into consideration, snow wise??
Cheers in advance

Default Board to check out

Check the button boards stiff is good for speed and back country riding. Or check into some rossignols. Are riding deep powder or all surface tryo pow?? Typically though if you go to a snowboard shop they will point you in the right direction. Im a dude so hopefully you'll get some insite from female riders on the site. That where I would start looking into

If she is an advanced rider she will want to choose her own board.
