You will be pleased to learn that Tesla has had a "stealth" Supercharger Station under construction at Estes Park (at the Stanley Hotel). According to those who found it, all that remains is the installation of the transformer:

Might be up and running by June and likely well before the Boulder Supercharger Station goes live.

Thanks. They'd said they had one planned last year, but nothing had been heard of it since. Assuming this opens fairly soon, this will be one of only two or three U.S. SCs that have opened this year that expand coverage to a new area, rather than just increasing density on an existing corridor. Almost all of the SCs known to be under construction are also density-boosters. Meanwhile, Gaylord, Michigan, needed to expand I-75 coverage north to the Upper Peninsula, has now been "under construction" for 7 months.

Tesla Supercharger Info

Last quarter, we opened 77 new Supercharger locations for a total of 1,205 Supercharger stations and more than 9,300 stalls worldwide. Most of the growth is currently focused on North America to support the initial Model 3 rollout. Nevertheless, in Europe, we already operate about 400 Supercharger stations.

Still not official, but reported used once. As I wrote over in the Estes Park TMC thread,
Hopefully Tesla will have this one open for the Memorial Day weekend.

and it looks like they will get a gateway SC open in time for the summer vacation season, for a change. W. Yellowstone was about the only other one I can think of that started in spring and opened in time. Still nothing known on Kalispell, Kayenta , Globe, Cody, or the three needed on I-15 north of I-90, and Payson's only in 'permit' status, which can mean anything or nothing. At least we can be thankful for small favors.

As supercharge.info sometimes jumps the gun, it's always a good idea to both read the postings for that SC (click on the SC listing after opening the 'changes' link or else the individual SC icon on the map, and then the 'discuss' link), and also click on the 'web page' link, which takes you to Tesla's page for that SC. It's officially open when Tesla's web page says it is. Often, even though someone's used it a few times and reported it as open to supercharge.info, it's still under test and may be in and out of service for some time, so shouldn't be counted on.

Estes Park still hasn't officially opened, although Tesla did change the targeted opening date to "Summer 2018". Wheatland, Wy has also been reported used, but it's targeted opening just says "2018". Other than those, infills for density/capacity make up the rest of the newly opened sites, with some older sites being upgraded with more stalls

On the positive side, Tesla's updated their SC map, and for California they do list several sites (as Coming Soon, which can mean anything or nothing) which will expand coverage or provide much needed density. Among these are Redding (I-5/SR 299), Adin (Jct. SR 299/139) and Susanville (Jct. SR 36/139, near US 395), which will open up northeastern California (Alturas etc.); Kirkwood (ski area on SR 88); Merced (Jct. SR 99/140) and Mariposa (Jct. SR 49/140 route into Yosemite); Bishop (Jct. US 395/6/SR168; Williams (Jct. I-5/SR 20). Redding's been on the list for about a year so don't hold your breath for any of these, but at least it shows intention.

Estes Park officially opened yesterday or Monday, and Wheatland's official now too.
