Today is the first day to submit applications for the permit lottery to camp in the Enchantments
this season. Unlike other permits, there is no rush to be first, all permits requested during the window will be entered into a lottery:
June 15 to October 15, 2012 reserved permits are required for overnight trips. Since demand for overnight permits exceeds supply a lottery is held annually. For the 2012 season the lottery application period will run from February 22, 2012 until 11:59 PM on March 13, 2012. All applications received during this period will be randomly drawn after March 13. The application fee is $6.00.
