Mountain biking in general is the primary sport for me. I tell people all the time that Mountain biking is the gate way drug. I started mountain biking first, than got into downhill MTB, then snow boarding, rock climbing. Also got into back packing which I to me is the first step to mountaineering.
I don't downhill much, I do more all mountain riding, but my preference is for downhill. It is expensive though, both the cost of the gear and lift passes and travel (I don't have a lift assist hill anywhere close) I ride a turner spot and specialized big hit for my downhill/free ride rig. Down hill is like walking on glass though, love it...
