Match N directory depth with regex

Hi I'm currently using powershell for this particular task. I have a string with multiple lines (each line is a directory) In the following manner

.../..../..../.../ On and on

I'd like to build a regex to match the a specific depth let's say I want a depth of 2:

. * / * /$

I tried that one however it printed most of them (eliminated files in the string

How im executing this $string | select-string ". * / * /$"

Thanks for the help
