Grand Canyon 2018 - Eight 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 2018 launch dates at the weighted lottery website (https://grcariverpermits.nps.gov
). The lottery will accept applications until Thursday, April 5, 2018, at 12:00 PM (noon) Mountain Standard Time. The available launch dates are:
Standard Size Trips (1 - 16 people):
June 2018: 2, 23
Small Size Trips (1 - 8 people):
April 2018: 19
June 2018: 6, 12, 18, 26, 30
Winners will have until Friday, April 6, 2018, 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.
The Grand Canyon National Park River Office is open Monday to Friday. Emails and phone calls received on a weekend will not be replied to until Monday.
