Help me pick my new board

Are you kidding? Ultra dream is a great mid-stiff all mountain board that is pow oriented but does great on groomers.

Those four are the best all mountain boards I've tried. Personally I own the riders choice because ice is the norm here and i need something i can easily flex. In the occasional pow/soft days I wish I had something more aggressive like those 4 boards.

Done.

why these 4 in particular?

the ultra dream is a powder board so that one is an obvious no.

my worry is with how this board might preform in steep chutes and more dangerous terrain

This is roughly the order in which I am considering these boards but I'm open to new suggestions. I like steep, narrow rides with jumps, grabs, drops, tree runs, etc. No desire to do butters/rails/etc. I ride Mammoth/Bear mostly which are generally soft-to-hard-packed conditions with some powder days, but I'm on the east coast sometimes and the conditions there can get very-hard-to-icy.

I'm a free-rider at heart, but I like to incorporate some freestyle into my free riding, let's put it that way, I don't actively seek the park except to hit a jump or two, I get my fix from getting creative with the terrain and going off trail.
