New womens board

I need some suggestions on a new board. I have been snowboarding for about 8 years now, and I think it's time for me to upgrade my equipment. I currently have a Burton Troop 151 (probably from 1999 or 2000) with Salomon boots and bindings. I spend a lot of time freeriding because I am with beginners a lot, but I like to go to the park whenever I can too. I have always been happy with my board but I think it's time to upgrade, but I'm not sure what an upgrade from a Troop would be. Please give me any suggestions you have.

There's so many options out there for you right now do you have a price range?

Yeah, I know I think I have too many options. I was thinking about the Rome Vinyl, or maybe a Burton GTwin. I guess I don't really have a price range, prolly not gonna spend more than $500 though. My plan is to buy from last season anyway if I can.

Are you looking for something more like a twin park board? Or do you want an all mountain freestyle board?

Well that's what I'm trying to decide. Even if I'm spending half my time in the park and half my time freeriding, would you suggest I get an all mountain board? That's what I'm assuming, so I'm leaning more towards the Vinyl.

50/50 I'd either get an all mountain freestyle board or get a stiffer freestyle board since you're in the mid west and the verticle drop isn't that large.
