The Black Tusk from Whistler peak in the spring.  In the winter there is good backcountry skiing around the Tusk, but access via snowmobile is recommended due to the very long low-angle approach.  In the summer, the hiking and camping around the Tusk is great, especially Taylor Meadows on the east side.  Summiting the Tusk requires a bit of fourth class scrambling on crappy volcanic rock.
