The Southern Ute Indian Montessori Academy shuttled their students to the slopes of Purgatory Resort for a fun filled day of snowboarding, Tuesday, Feb. 18. The youth split into two separate age groups for lessons on the bunny hill. Instructors worked with students to get a feel for snowboarding and guide them down the hill. SUIMA staff provided a picnic lunch on the slopes, and parents were encouraged to participate in the youth activities.
