I've been hoping for a normal L2 station there for my Leaf. Now I'll be going by there clear to Salida and then look back and realize that had I a Tesla I could turn there and continue, either north or south, without going clear to Salida first and then back.
On our recent trip to CO and WY, we spent our first night in Gunnison, CO, your beautiful home, where we charged our Model S 85 on a "50 amp" outlet at the KOA. Basically, we left the Grand Junction Superchargers with about 90% charge and had about 100 miles of range left when we arrived in Gunnison. We got a full charge overnight, left early in the morning, drove over Monarch Pass (above 11,000'), and spent the day in Colorado Springs but skipped the Superchargers there. Only when we reached Denver did we need to stop at another Supercharger before heading up near Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park for that night.
Driving a Tesla through Colorado's mountains was a wonderful experience thanks to the silent, instant climbing power and the lack of range anxiety. That wouldn't have been the case without the Supercharger network.
