Phantom Ranch has extreme demand for reservations and typically sells out very quickly under the current reservations process in which we begin accepting reservations on the first of each month for the same month of the following year. We recognize that because of the extreme demand there are challenges with securing reservations at Phantom Ranch. As a result, we will be changing the reservation process and converting to an online lottery system beginning with stays January 2019 and beyond.
Below is a high-level outline of the process to help everyone prepare for this change that will require action up to two months earlier than under the current reservation process.
Effective with stays of January 2019 and beyond, Phantom Ranch will utilize a lottery system for random selection of the bed space (cabins and dorms).
Lottery entries will be required between the 1st and 25th of the 15th month prior to the desired stay month.
Lottery submissions will be processed, lottery winners notified and reservations guaranteed within the 14th month prior.
Any unsold/unclaimed inventory will be released to general availability for reservations following the current 13-month reservation window.
Month of Stay: January 2019
Lottery Submission: November 1-25, 2017
Lottery Processing and Notification: December 2017
Unsold inventory to General Availability: January 2, 2018 (normally on the 1st of the month, January is on the 2nd due to the New Year’s Day holiday)
The below grid provides a schedule for the first complete year of the lottery with key dates of the lottery process, based upon the month of stay at Phantom Ranch.
