But I haven't read a bad review of the sanction, so I feel good reccomending it. The Force, which is the more trail oriented AM rig they're putting out, has a little more of an identity crisis. The HT angle is just a bit too steep with a 140mm fork, so it feels like a long travel XC bike. I've heard it does well with a longer fork, but then it's really similar to the sanction. And if the dude's going to resorts like Fernie, or especially whistler, he'll want burly.

Looked into Ventana? The terremoto 6.0 seems pretty sweet.
