Poynter has a rundown of The New York Times’ “Snow Project,” the text and multimedia project the paper put together to tell the story of skiers and snowboarders trapped under an avalanche in Washington.  The Snow Project has impressed more than a few people.  The Times’ Graphic Director Steve Duenes told Poynter that the goal of the project was to “find ways to allow readers to read into, and then through multimedia, and then out of multimedia.  So it didn’t feel like you were taking a detour, but the multimedia was part of the one narrative flow.”
