I’ve got the permit application and the date marked on my calendar for 2019. I’m hoping the demand allows at least 50% of those in the lottery to get their preferred date. We have a narrow window, as my GS will be working and
starting college. We did Half-Dome 5 years ago, where the lottery only allowed about 25% of applicants to get their date. We had a party of 4 and each one of us did an application. We got lucky!
I’ve heard rumors that the Yosemite Valley CGs will soon be going to a lottery system also. It can’t happen soon enough for us. Due to aftermarket dealers gaming the system, normal folks like us hardly have a chance. We haven’t even tried in years.
