Default Advice on new board

I am looking to buy a new board. Currently I am riding a 151cm GNU b-nice. I have found that the board is a little too long for me, especially when riding moguls or trying to whip the board around trees/have control in the park. I want to stick with GNU and have been looking at the velvet guru, C3-btx and the ladies choice. Out of all of them, I am most interested in the C3-btx. I am 5'5/5'6 and am not sure if I should go with a 146cm or 149cm.

I ride east coast icy mountains. I like to travel to experience real snow and pow. (Don't want something too short where it will get in the way of all-mountain riding). Leaning towards 146cm but hesitant so any guidance is appreciated!

Your weight is an important factor when considering sizes.

I honestly don't think you will notice that big of a difference between the 149 and 151 so I say get the 146 for the ice coast.

Bring the 151 for places with more snow.

I was actually looking to sell my current board for I feel like it's more for beginners. Do you recommend keeping it?

Also, thoughts on the different boards?

Libtech and Roxy also have the magnetraction that you like. All 3 come from the same parent company. The without really thinking about upgrade from the bnice would be the ladies choice I think. Though for your specifics needs there may be better in their lineup.

I guess my real question is... should I focus on having an all mountain board using 146cm? Or, get an all mountain board slightly longer but more advanced and then an additional park board. I don't want to be stuck constantly finding myself needing an upgrade.

I'm mostly interested in the C3-btx for "all mountain". I was looking at Lobsters for a park board. Lib-tech's run longer and I've looked at Roxy but think I want to stick with GNU.

Im definitely not advanced in park but, from what I experienced, my current board was holding me back more than it was allowing me to get better.
