Can't comment on the bike you listed but are you trying to decide between a FR or a DH bike? Personally I'd go FR unless you are committed to riding lifts every time you want to get any saddle time.

My FR bike is a Cannondale Gemini. Its pretty old now but still rides nice. I upgraded the fork and rear shock. I'm on a single crown fork to keep the overall weight manageable uphill. I've got 170mm front and rear.

Angel Fire Ski Area in NM has an excellent FR park by the way.
