Members of the Kachina Peaks Avalanche Center (KPAC) will be giving an Introduction to Avalanches presentation on December 6th at 6:30pm at the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office/Flagstaff Police Station.

KPAC presents an excellent summary of winter backcountry information and resources, as well as some advanced course opportunities to those who wish to learn more.

Please plan on arriving before 6:30pm, as the front office of the building closes at this time.

United States Forest Service personnel will be present during the presentation, and will be issuing Backcountry Permits to those who wish to recreate in the winter backcountry.
