COPPER MOUNTAIN, CO - All indications suggested that at least one avalanche had buried someone east of Copper Mountain on Wednesday.

Looking through their spotting scopes, members of the Copper Mountain Ski Patrol saw ski tracks that disappeared into the path of one of two avalanches.

As it turned out, no one was buried, but it took a rescue effort to figure that out.
