Looking down Cowboy Ridge in the Whistler Backcountry.  If you look really closely, near the center of the shot, you can see some people skining up.
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.

Backcountry skiing in Whistler.  I think this is Cowboy Ridge we're ascending. The runs on Blackcomb are visible on the right in the background.  To get here we got a backcountry pass (one ride up) for Whistler and then headed east over the Musical Bumps.  Some of the Musical Bumps are now lift serviced rather than backcountry (as of 2006 or 2007), but Cowboy Ridge isn't, and it was great skiing.
