Buying my first bike. Looking for an AM setup with 140 or 150mm front travel for under $2000

Currently riding in California at Demo, Santa Cruz, Downieville, however I am moving out to Colorado soon. Want something capable of the resorts/ some downhill, but only a couple times a year.

Thinking of getting a used Specialized Pitch or Santa Cruz Butcher, however the Pivot Firebird or Rocky Mountain Slayer are also in the mix.

The other alternative is to stick it out for a while for deal on an SB66, Mojo, Enduro, or maybe save some coin for a Firebird 27.5 or Bronson.

Please share any experiences, comparisons or recommendations.
Thanks.
