I like hikes with my kids and basic alpine climbs like Mt. Baker, Mt. Hood, Adams, Rainier, St Helens, etc.  Glacier Peak is next.  Mt Stuart, Dragontail, Eldorado, Daniel, Shuksan, etc are also on the list as well.

I just got set up with AT skiing gear last season.  I skied down three volcanoes now and I never want to walk anywhere again.
