Maybe try giving a few details because every company makes like 3 or more boards that fit that description... Try the capita indoor survival though.

this may be a little bit rash, but it sounds like youre a new rider. most new boarders seem to cling burton instantly. make sure you expand your horizons a bit. imo you can get way more board for your buck from companies like capita and forum.

Both "great flex" and "all mountain" are completely subjective.  That provides very little to go off of.
ROLL ON, BISHES.

I suggest the 5150 BSOD C2BTX...I heard it's a quiver killer
Also, the LTD Sierra all-in-one has great flex AND all-mtn...hence "all-in-one"
Another one is the Lamar Jib-it-all-you-got with mag and amp tek...effin amazing!


EDIT:
Your reviews are amazing!  3 a day?

I'm assuming the banana magic didn't work out for you, huh?

Did you google it?

I think you could maybe get a better idea of the great boards in your category by looking at the Transworld Good Wood list every year.  They break it down to all-mountain and park specific for both men and women. 
 
Just asking here is ridiculous as there are dozens and dozens of boards that can fit that space.

the answer is always in the details.
Looking at the sierra crew for myself to provide an answer to a similar question posed....

I ride the DC MLF everywhere.  Still a cambered board that is easy to ride, great turn inition, good edge hold, and very playful.  Will handle charging the pow just as well as it will handle a big kicker in the park.  Great board for beginner all the way up to advanced.  My vote is the DC MLF.

My 2010 Burton Joystick is a great All-Mountain and is pretty flexible, I love it.

I look at the Good Wood list too, but how legit do you think it is?  I've heard that they don't test or rate well the snowboarding companies that don't advertise with them, like Never Summer, Jones, etc.
