Gavin Malia: Play up warnings

I noticed in Friday’s Steamboat Today a listing under “News in Brief” for a local avalanche watch issued by the National Weather Service and Colorado Avalanche Information Center.

I commend the publication of such a warning. However, I would like to request that such a warning be placed in a more prominent location and highlighted in such a way as to draw attention to it.

Better yet, I think it would be great to publish current avalanche conditions on the front page as part of the Snow Report and a more detailed report on the Page 2 weather section.

The Page 2 weather section lists a very brief one-line report about avalanche conditions. It tells nothing of the current avalanche watch. Could a more thorough report be published on this page?
