Avalanches making news in Colorado
By Summit Voice
SUMMIT COUNTY —Colorado’s snowpack turned deadly again last week, as skiers and snowboarders tested the sketchy conditions in dangerous terrain and paid the ultimate price. Several climate-related stories also made the top tier this week, with one article that examined the link between wildfires and climate and an end-of-the-week story on the ongoing battle over a European Union plan to reduce airline carbon emissions through a cap and trade system. Along with environmental coverage, a photo essay on Africa by correspondent Garrett Palm was also a reader favorite.
