You have all day, make the most of it.
When the skies start puking that fluffy white, grab a board that's ready to keep up. If it's Burton's Day Trader Women's Snowboard, you've got nothing to worry about. It's part of Burton's Family Tree line of freeride-inspired boards, and it's tuned specifically for women who shred all day without apology. The tapered shape and Flat Top construction give it tons of float and all the stability you need. Don't waste your time in the lodge, there are fresh turns to be had.
The Day Trader is built on Burton's Flat Top camber profile. You guessed it, that means it's flat. The upshot is that you get the stability and pop of camber, with the catch-free ride of a rockered board. So while it's built for pow, it'll handle firm snow just fine. That's a good thing, because you'll come across groomers, hardpack, and maybe even ice, on a powder day at the resort. But you knew that already. The 12mm of taper means the nose is wider than the tail for effortless float. That means your back leg won't be burning, so you can attack your last run of the day just as hard as the first.
The Pro Tip construction keeps the weight of the nose and tail down, which makes it easier to throw the Day Trader around. It gets The Channel binding mounting system to take the pain out of setup, and give you infinite options for dialing in your stance. Plus, the sintered WFO base holds tons of wax and slides insanely fast, so you can laugh at your friends who got stuck trying to follow your ninja lines. After all, these things are always funnier when they happen to somebody else.

How does this board handle at high speed?...
How does this board handle at high speed? Is it more stable? Or is there a lot of chatter?
I've been on the Trick Pony, which is the mens version of the Day Trader, but didn't spend too much time bombing hardpack. It's in that grey area between true camber and v-rocker in stability. The early rise brings in your contact points closer to your binders but having more contact in the middle of your board over the v-rocker helps a lot with control. It wasn't as washy as other flat top boards that I've been on from other companies. Where this thing really excels is in the powder and choppy chunder.
This is THE women's backcountry board

My wife took this board to Japan to ride the deep powder and it's a sensational board. She had a feel good flying V previously, but this board is so much better for the backcountry/deep powder off piste. She was riding shoulder deep powder and the board was a delight to ride. Highly recommend this board.
