Grand Canyon 2017 - Nine Launch Dates Available Now!

Grand Canyon 2017 - Nine 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, January 26, 2017, at 12:00 PM (noon) Mountain Standard Time. The available launch dates are:

Standard Size Trips (1 - 16 people):
February 2017: 1, 3, 7, 13
March 2017: 12, 13, 25, 29, 31

Small Size Trips (1 - 8 people):
None

Winners will have until Friday, January 27, 2017, 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

Those are some very good late March dates. If I weren't already on an April trip I'd be real excited for one of those.

I'm going for one of the March dates even though my Girlfriend has a May 18th launch.... I do not like the idea of being on a dam controlled river during high water season.

Stay on good terms... as far as the Grand goes, the higher the better! Seriously, May flows have often been lower then March flows, depending on specific date...

Are you kidding me pull your skirt up Alice! we would have to snow from now until next winter to fill up in Lake Powell!? I think you could safely do either trip without your panties in a bunch

Have a great time on either trip that you end up on!

I took the comment to mean that they would prefer to be on a naturally flowing river during the high water season and float a dam controlled one during the fringe/dy season. Win/Win.
