well I'd probably say stay away from the Throwback and the Coda then, especially on the ice/hardpack and if you're not riding rails etc., you want a firmer, damper board than either of those.
Neither of the Bohemian or Element will be "too much" board for that riding.
The Bohemian is still very fresh in my mind since I rode it earlier this season and in some varied conditions over a few days in North Carolina. It was a super-responsive board and that's what surprised me the most, so for ripping groomers you'll be fine. The Element is a more-than-capable board, too. It is just not so fresh in my mind anymore, and costs $100 more than the Marhar.
AngrySnowboarder rode the Bohemian, too. I don't think he publishes his reviews until sometime over the summer so maybe keep an eye out for that if you want another opinion on that board.
