The opening day will be announced as soon as we can confirm the date with the registration company to make sure that they are able to handle the increased load. The 2nd weekend in March is usually the target.

As for when it will fill, anywhere from 1 hour to 4 months. It is very hard to say since it can vary wildly from year to year. The PPM has 800 slots. The first 750 or so usually go in the first few hours. If 50 more folks decide to jump in since they spotted a news article and were inspired to register, then it fills on day one. But I've also seen the opposite happen with last 10 slots taking 3+ weeks to fill. 

The ascent is similar but due to the larger number of slots it is historically not as fast to fill. It typically takes anywhere from 1 week to 6 weeks to fill.
