Since you already own a hard tail, a big bike might be a good idea - particularly if you plan on riding Whistler a ton. It is kind of nice to have choices. If you are looking for a do-it-all bike then something with ~160mm front and back is more than enough. Right now I have a DH sled and a beefy hard tail. I have also had a (almost) do-it-all fully (~160mm). I have been happy in all cases. Ride the HT at Fromme, and save the bigger bike for the shuttle days. (Or really, ride whatever the hell you want to ride wherever you happen to be riding!)
