AJ wins award for “Taming the Snow Beast”

Aspen Journalism’s work was recognized at the Colorado Press Association’s annual awards ceremony in April, with a first-place win in the category of “Best Story/Picture Combination” in Class 1.

The award was for “Taming the Snow Beast,” an in-depth story by AJ freelancer Tim Cooney about the history of skiing in Highland Bowl.

Even if you read the piece when it was originally published in the Aspen Daily News, you owe it to yourself to explore the full multimedia package on the AJ website. It includes a series of never-before-published photographs recovered from the buried camera of one of the victims of the fatal 1984 Highlands avalanche.
