I disagree. I really enjoy my Cannondale Gemini. I can ride it up or down. Is it a DH bike on the downhill, no. Is it a XC bike going up, hell no. But it does not require a lift to ride, no. If gravity is going to be your thing and you can live at the lift buy a DH. You'll just need another bike to ride elsewhere. Really its just about having fun.

In the end you'll need a lot of bikes For starters...

XC mountain
Tandem (if you have a partner)

This is the most fun on two wheels without a motor IMO. Ventana soft tail on Slickrock.
