Skier-death stories top the list
By Summit Voice
SUMMIT COUNTY — Ski-related deaths in Colorado and Utah topped the Summit Voice headlines, as coverage of the season’s first deadly avalanche triggered a surge of traffic.
I was psyched to see that a somewhat wonky water piece also garnered some attention, as the Forest Service and ski industry face off over water rights. This story still hasn’t been reported by any other new outlet, not because it’s not important, but because it’s complex — and most papers these days don’t have the resources to keep reporters on staff who can understand and explain this stuff.
