Grand Canyon - 2017 Main Lottery is Open and Accepting Applications

GCPBA RiverNews 2/2/16 - 2017 Main Lottery is Open and Accepting Applications

The 2017 Main Lottery is now accepting applications for 472 calendar year 2017 noncommercial river trips (397 standard size trips and 75 small size trips). Lottery applications will be accepted through noon Mountain Standard Time on Wednesday, February 24, 2016, and the lottery drawing will take place by the end of that week. Applicants can log in after Saturday, February 27, 2016 to find out if they won.

Lottery winners will have until noon Mountain Standard Time on Friday, March 4, 2016 to pay their trip deposits ($400 for standard sized trips, $200 for small sized 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.

A list of the available launch dates can be found at http://www.nps.gov/grca/planyourvisit/cancelled-dates.htm

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.

If you need any assistance, please ask. We are happy to help.
