Five Summit Middle School students endured a day of ski patrol activities Friday at Copper Mountain.

A snowcat ride to the top of the Rendezvous Lift from the top of the American Flyer started their day, followed by an explosive demonstration and avalanche dog exercise.

During the exercise, students watched an explosive go off, buried classmates in the snow and saw an avalanche dog in action. The students also toured the Super Bee motor room, took part in a lift evacuation and did an end-of-day sweep.

The students were able to take a day off of school and learn at Copper Mountain because they are part of the On The Right Track program.

Students apply to be part of this program and must have good grades and good behavior to be accepted.
