Grand Canyon 2017 Launch Dates Available Now!

Grand Canyon 2017 - Thirteen Launch Dates Available Now!

This is from the Grand Canyon River Permits Office. Good luck to everyone!

We have just opened a follow-up lottery for 2017 launch dates at the weighted lottery website (https://grcariverpermits.nps.gov) . The lottery will accept applications until Thursday, December 22, 2016, at 12:00 PM (noon) Mountain Standard Time. The available launch dates are:

Standard Size Trips (1 - 16 people):
January 2017: 16
February 2017: 1, 3, 12
March 2017: 3, 7, 12, 18, 26
October 2017: 13
November 2017: 23

Small Size Trips (1 - 8 people):
April 2017: 1
May 2017: 2

Winners will have until Friday, December 23, 2016, at 12:00 PM (noon) Mountain Standard Time to pay their nonrefundable deposits ($400 for standard size trips, $200 for small size trips).

We strongly recommended all lottery applications list at least one Potential Alternate Trip Leader (PATL). If the original trip leader becomes unable to go on the river trip, and there are no confirmed PATLs, the trip will be cancelled. PATLs can be added to a river trip by the trip leader only when submitting a lottery application; see Noncommercial River Trip Regulations for clarification.

FORGOT YOUR PASSWORD? You can request a new temporary password by clicking "Forgot my username and/or password" (located below the login box) when on the noncommercial river website. IMPORTANT: The worst time to request a password reset is during the first few hours after a lottery notification email has been sent. The email with your new temporary password will not go out until all lottery notification emails have been sent.

Sincerely,
Grand Canyon River Permits Office

The NPs migrated their website a few weeks ago and sent out an e-mail notice. That's the reason the old link doesn't work. Good luck!

However, I am sure I put the new link into my bookmark. And the link that is in the email from the Park is not working.

That's for me, anyone else getting through?

Same thing here, I logged in after they changed just to make sure everything worked ok. I put the new link on my desktop and I can't get into the log in screen either. Hopefully they will resolve the problem and extend the lottery times to compensate.
