The word I've heard is that the park is not yet entertaining permit requests. @V-Dub may be able to give you some additional info, but I would assume that the promoters are holding out hope for a bit longer before bagging on it.
Hey everyone, we are bummed too, but we knew that it was a potential for this year. Yes, we know other parks have started issuing permits and holding events. We have a great relationship with our land managers, we've worked with them for many years., and they've always been supportive of our events. We absolutely respect their decision about permits this spring. They are having unprecedented park usage, are chronically underfunded and understaffed, and are handling this crisis as best they can. We're looking ahead to 2022, and look forward to catching up with everyone soon!
