i havent rode whistler but from wat i know i would go for something that would last a bit longer than a season the m6 is a mint bike but not the most durable

do think a 951 would hold up any better?

intense are more race bikes, and aimed at being fast down the hill, but as far as durability goes, ive heard they arent the best. maybe look at something like a giant glorydh, or transition tr450, im sure those would be built burly and strong while remaining fairly light (espeicially the glory)

The new gambler is over 7k. I'll probably go for a new glory 1 and slowly upgrade

a blindside would be great. it jumps great and is great when pedaling. Tr450 wouldnt be the best choice. its a really saggy bike so it wouldnt really "pop" out of the jumps. my demo 7 is great for whistler. it tracks great and pops huge. and i think i might be getting a blindside with full saint for my next bike

I wouldnt get a dh bike for whistler and areas but a Fr bike.
