Grand Canyon 2016 Launch Dates Available Now!

Fifteen Grand Canyon 2016 Launch Dates Available Now!

From the Grand Canyon River Permits Office. Good luck to everyone!

We have just opened a follow-up lottery for 2016 launch dates at the weighted lottery website (https://npspermits.us/grandcanyon/river). The lottery will accept applications until Thursday, December 17, 2015, at 12:00 PM (noon) Mountain Standard Time.

The available launch dates are:

Standard Size Trips
(1 - 16 people):
January 2016: 8, 13, 18, 30, 31
February 2016: 2, 9, 14, 18, 27
March 2016: 2, 10
May 2016: 17
October 2016: 26
November 2016: 29

Winners will have until Friday, December 18, 2015, at 12:00 PM (noon) Mountain Standard Time to pay their nonrefundable deposits ($400 for standard 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.

Sincerely,
Grand Canyon River Permits Office
