Whistler's Winter Family Wonderland

Canada's British Columbia is known for its winter scenic terrain and family-friendly skiing on the two adjacent mountains of Whistler and Blackcomb. These slopes can accommodate some 12,000 skiers a day on dozens of trails with short waits in the numerous lift lines.

Whistler Village

Especially appealing for families, It's a winter wonderland of family adventure.Whistler Village offers the most slope-side lodging accommodations in North America. The village, nestled at the foot of the mountains, is a car-free zone and offers walking paths and over 300 shops, eateries, and lodging accommodations.

Activities

Tours of the snowy Whistler back country areas are available by dog sled, by snowshoes, and also by sitting cozy and warm in horse-drawn sleighs.

For cross-country ski buffs the Lost Lake Trails are a 10-minute walk from most village accommodations. The trail system includes 20 miles of groomed trails; nearly 3 miles are lit for nighttime Nordic rambles. Equipment rental and trail passes are available at several shops in the village.

Volcanoes, Earthquakes, and Tsunamis -- Oh My!

Mother Nature has never been more active than on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Earthquakes are frequent on the Big Island of Hawaii, but more so recently and with higher magnitudes. Swarms of earthquakes accompanied the March 5, 2011 collapse of the Puu 'O 'o crater and the eruption of lava from the March 6, 2011 fissure, spattering molten lava up to 80 feet high along Kilauea's east rift zone.

At the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, you can find out more about the earthquakes at http://hvo.wr.usgs.gov/earthquakes/ and Kilauea's recent activity at http://hvo.wr.usgs.gov/. Check out the volcano webcams at http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/hvo/cams/
