A member went through the purchase of a pass at RMNP on Recreation.gov and you can just buy the Timed Entry Permit Reservation without having your entrance pass first. So that should be the first priority now to get your timed entry pass starting this Thursday July 1st. You'll need both a Timed Entry Permit Reservation and an Entrance Pass to get into RMNP and the Mt Evans summit (not Echo Lake).
To get a timed entry permit reservation for Rocky Mountain National Park:
Rocky Mountain National Park Timed Entry, Rocky Mountain National Park - Recreation.gov. .... (click 'Add date...' to purchase entry ticket)
To get a park pass
You can purchase the park passes online or at the staffed park entrance stations
To get a timed entry permit reservation for Mt. Evans: Starting JULY 13th.
(the timed entry permit and park pass are not needed if only going to echo lake)
(note: purchasing the Timed Entry Permit here also buys the park pass unless you click 'Add a Pass' as you check out (for adding the America the Beautiful pass or other pass you may already have)

UPDATE June 22
Fellow Cruisers, we know this past year has been trying, painful, lonely, and just plain sucked for most of us, and we have lost many people we knew and loved. and although we realize the pandemic is surely not behind us, God willing we ARE proceeding with caution with Cruise the Rockies 20 in August 2021!
Finally some GOOD NEWS!! We had major delays planning with the hotel, as far as the whole pandemic and them opening , then forced to close and so on, Lady luck has also gone through some ownership changes as the parent company are now owners of Caeser's Entertainment and have also adopted the Caeser's name, instead of Eldorado. BUT Finally I was able to get our contract renewed AT THE SAME RATE AS LAST YEAR!!! $99 per night plus tax and resort fee. that's over $100 off the usual Saturday night rate!
Be sure to book or rebook your room. There is a LIMITED block of rooms so please get your registration mailed in to us ASAP and make that hotel reservation. I am pleased to say the family owned t-shirt company we have used for the past 5 years is still in business although they had to cut staff significantly, we are going to support them and they are already in the process of designing our beautiful 20th anniversary shirt so please again get your registration in, t-shirt is free with your paid registration, please buy an extra! it would be AWESOME to get 50 cars registered this year and remember you can always get your money back or applied to next year if something does happen.
Please know that we will do everything we can to make this year the best ever but there may still be restrictions in place, we might not be eating together for example, we will still have great cruises and things to do no matter what!
We would like those that come to participate in two exchanges. Voluntary of course but we will need to know who's in
bring 40?(or however many cars we register) of the same item, something that costs $1 or less or free?...something that is from your state, favorite team, pt related, gadget, decal, magnet, whatever you want... one for every other car...you can bring two different things if you're a couple or just the one....
Participate in a round robin type of gift exchange, but no gag stuff! something YOU would like or use! cost of $15 to $20, item needs to be wrapped please. In this case, one or two gifts, your choice...or you can opt out. (so that's a total of ONE, or maybe two gifts total that you bring for this gift exchange).
Please contact Rick Conine with responses or questions please.
phone number: 303-332-7862
Thanks so much for your patience! Stay Safe.

Cruise The Rockies XX at Black Hawk, CO
Thursday August 12 2021 - Sunday August 15 2021
Classed As One Of The Top Cruising Events In America
In early 2001, a group of people got together in Denver Colorado to see if there was enough interest in forming aPT Cruiser club in Colorado. In a matter of a couple of hours and a short cruise in the Denver area, we were hooked and the Colorado PT Cruiser Club was formed. We would meet at a local restaurant for a good meal and a visit with each other about our cruisers and then it was off to go cruising somewhere in the mountains close to where we met for lunch. We enjoyed this so much that we decided to invite everyone from other States to come visit us and let us show them our beautiful State.
In June of 2001, we created what we called "Cruise The Rockies", and through web sites around the Country, we invited everyone to come cruise with us. The rest is history. Cruise The Rockies has become one of the best cruiser events in the Country, based on the simple fact of Cruising. Sure, we love to show off our cruisers to everyone, but the best part of Cruise The Rockies is meeting new friends that have the same interest in cars, getting to see old friends from around the Country that have been to previous events, and most of all, to show off the beautiful mountain areas of Colorado. You can say that the Colorado PT Cruiser Club is a travel agent for the State.
The second year of Cruise The Rockies was cruising over Independence Pass. While the committee was on our "pre-cruise" check, we were coming over the pass and one of the members said something that has become our motto.
